There are a lot of misconceptions about child custody agreements that our attorneys can clarify. One common misunderstanding surrounding child custody is that it determines how much time each parent gets with the child. That is NOT true. Custody determines which parent gets to have decision making power over a child’s health care, education and religious upbringing.
There are different types of custody arrangements that can accompany a parenting plan or visitation schedule. Not every family benefits from joint custody agreements or sole custody agreements. Instead, some families may opt to have split custody, which involves a “separation of siblings” according to gender matching. Shared custody is sometimes preferred since it allows parents to have equal time allotted to their child. It is more like a parenting agreement than a child custody agreement since both parents can make decisions for their child’s upbringing in a shared custody arrangement.
Regardless of the type of custody you choose, our attorneys will keep you informed of your options based on your specific situation.
