Negotiating a Child Custody Agreement

In most cases, a child custody agreement that is negotiated between parents is preferable to custodial order handed down by a judge. You know your children and their specific needs. Trials are unpredictable and the outcome is uncertain. Whenever possible, the custody lawyers at Rue Law Firm will work with you to reach a mutually acceptable agreement with your former spouse or partner that helps to raise the children in ways that you both can agree upon.

However, if negotiations go awry and a child custody agreement cannot be reached, they will gladly go to trial for you.

They will also assist you in determining a joint custody implementation plan to suggest to the court. The implementation plan defines when each parent has physical custody or visitation of the children so that the children are assured of frequent and continuing contact with both parents. The joint custody implementation plan also allocates the legal authority and responsibility of each parent and can provide for such particulars as transportation, vacation, and hurricane evacuation schedules.

Rue Law Firm has developed, gained judicial approval of, and implemented numerous custody implementation plans. They can help develop a plan for you and, when circumstances necessitate, work with you and the courts to modify your child custody agreement.
