There are many specifics that need to be worked out in a child custody arrangement, including:
- Which parent will have primary custody
- How much time children will spend with each parent
- Working out a visitation schedule
- Deciding where children will go for holidays and vacations
- What to do to if a spouse doesn’t follow the parenting plan
- How to deal with changes in circumstances (for example, if a parent moves or gets a new work schedule)
There are many factors to consider when creating a plan for custody and visitation. Any arrangement needs to address the best ways to meet the emotional, physical and financial needs of your children. Agreement needs to be reached on issues involving both legal and physical custody.
Before approving any custody arrangement, a judge takes into account the best interests of the child. This involves consideration of each parent’s wishes, the child’s relationship with parents, the child’s emotional and physical health, the child’s adjustment to home and school, the child’s wishes regarding custody and other factors.
A visitation schedule is usually arranged after considering each parent’s work schedule, the child’s school schedule and the child’s extracurricular activities. The schedule may include overnight stays, alternate weekends and mid-week visits.
