Even though spring isn't here yet, fathers who have child custody orders for their children should start making plans for the summer months now. This helps avoid the stress of having to make last minute plans that might not be the ideal solution to issues.
As any divorced parent with kids will tell you, co-parenting with the ex is a work in progress. Usually, it gets easier with more time and distance from the emotional havoc of the divorce, but issues still manage to crop up from time to time.
A child custody agreement is a roadmap that you will follow when you are dealing with your child's other parent and figuring out how things are going to work with your child. This agreement has to include several points so that you and the other parent can turn to it when questions come up. If you are trying to get the initial child custody agreement drawn up, be sure to think about these points during the process. When necessary, a family law attorney can aid you in deciding important points to consider.
