Review your entire child custody order for a full understanding

Having to deal with issues related to your children can be troublesome. The problems you will face are increased when you are dealing with a child custody arrangement. It is imperative to ensure you are complying with the terms of the order, so that you don't face future legal issues. We realize that settling into this situation isn't always easy, so we are here to help you go through the order so you can understand what you need to do and what your ex is expected to do.

Child custody orders cover many aspects of the arrangement. One of the terms that is reviewed often is the parenting time schedule. This is the outline of when each parent will have the children with them. A schedule for normal times of the year is included, but there is often another schedule for holidays. It is best to become familiar with both of these.

Another area of the arrangement is the decision-making abilities. This lets each parent know what aspects of the child's life they make the decisions for. Parents who can work together might make all decisions as a team. If this isn't possible, a parent is assigned to categories, such as health care and education. On top of the normal decision-making duties, you need to review what happens in an emergency situation.

We know that all of this is a lot to take in. You should go over the agreement as it is written to make sure that you understand everything. In some cases, there are other terms, such as a code of conduct for the parents, that also has to be complied with.
