Guidance In Child Custody And Visitation Agreements
Negotiating child custody and visitation agreements can be emotionally challenging. Too often, it pits parents against each other in a contest for time with their children. At Ricki M. Replin, P.C., our goal is to take the drama out of these negotiations. Coming to an agreement is rarely easy, but it doesn’t need to be contentious. We strive to find a mutually agreeable solution that puts the needs of the children first.
Factors Affecting Custody Agreements
The top priority in negotiating custody agreements is to always have the best interests of the children in mind. However, the inconvenient details of the real world must also be factored in. For various reasons, the ability of each parent to meet the demands of raising children is not always equal. Many things that have nothing to do with parenting skills are often at play such as work shifts, accommodations for the children and each parent’s home relative to where the school is located. Other factors that are considered include:
- Health needs of the children
- History of abuse or neglect within the family
- The health of each parent
- The nature of the relationship between the parent and each child
We make sure the court understands your needs and wishes in making its final decision.
