What Must Be Included in a Child Custody Agreement?
A child custody agreement outlines the child custody guidelines. It is generally issued concurrently with a divorce or legal separation decree.
In general, child custody agreements typically include the following:
- Which parent has been awarded primary custody rights;
- Which parent has been awarded legal custody rights (generally the same parent that has been granted physical custody rights);
- Whether custody will be split evenly between the parents;
- Whether any other parties can assume custody, such as grandparents;
- Visitation schedule for the noncustodial parent; and
- Child support provisions.
What is typically included and any other stuff that they want to make sure is included but can be skipped over.
