One of the most exciting times in a mother’s life is the moment she finds out she is going to be a mom. As women, we immediately become attached to our children, even when they are the size of a sesame seed. You are so in tune with your children, their needs and emotions. One of the most difficult moments a mother can face is trying to figure out the best child custody agreement.
There are various child custody agreements, a majority time sharing parental agreement can be fairly common. In the time sharing agreement, a judge may order one parent control over specific aspects of the children’s welfare.
Some factors that a judge will consider before deciding about time sharing include:
- Responsibility given to each parent
- Parental adaptability
- Current living situation
- Any prior domestic violence
- Parental health
- Special Needs
Given emotions and how tension can run high, we highly advise that you and your ex-spouse agree to a parenting plan. The parenting plan is a document that directs how parents will care of the children. It outlines time sharing, responsibilities and decision making for the children.
