Get a Custody Agreement in Writing
By Erin Zimmerer, Esquire
Recently I have spoken to a number of people regarding custody agreements, whether they need a written agreement or should just try to work something out with the other parent. I always recommend that two parents try to work out an agreement between themselves whenever possible. But even if the two of you can agree on something, get it in writing. That is where an attorney comes in. They take the agreement, write it up and take it to the Court so it becomes a legally binding document. Anytime, two people can agree on something, there are less hurt feelings and it is easier to keep the communication lines open. But if the agreement is not made into a Court order, it could be hard to prove what the agreement was and what has been changed. Your children are the most important part of your life. Make sure you protect them and your relationship with them.
