CONSIDERING that both parties intend to reach an agreement on shared custody of [CHILD]; CONSIDERING that the parties have the desire and intention to ensure definitively, through this agreement, custody and custody of the minor child. You and your co-parent are trying to put in place a child care system that works for your child without including the family court? Child custody and support are matters of national and federal law. Every state except Massachusetts has adopted the Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA). The UCCJEA requires that the state of origin of this child, defined as the place where they lived six consecutive months prior to the trial, be subject to custody proceedings against a particular child. If a child has not lived in any state for six consecutive months, his or her state of origin is defined as the state with significant ties to the child and at least one of the parents, as well as essential evidence of the child`s care. As soon as a state accepts the case, known as jurisdiction, it retains control of the case until a court decides that the child no longer has any connection to that state. With this daycare schedule, the children live with parents A for two days, then with parents B for two days, then they spend a long three-day weekend with parents A. All parties agreed that each parent is responsible for bringing them to school during the child care period. Our proposal is comprehensive as it is, but also versatile, as all additional or alternative provisions regarding vacation visits, moving contracts, parental drug use or alcohol use or temporary emergency injunctions can be included to meet the needs of each family. Child protection exchanges take place (day) (time). Below is a very simple agreement on child care, which can be modified to work for shared custody, shared custody and full or primary custody situations.
The custody agreement must be checked by a lawyer to ensure that it is acceptable in your jurisdiction.
