Finding the right child custody agreement

Divorce is often very difficult for parents in Massachusetts, but it is especially tough on children who are faced with unfamiliar realities and big changes. They are often concerned about where they will live, moving to a new home, when they will get to see each parent and if they will be able to keep their things. Naturally, they have a lot of questions. To help the child cope with the high level of emotion and stress that come with divorce, it is important that parents set aside their differences and find the right custody solution for the children that they share.

There are many factors to consider when creating a good custody arrangement. It is not a “one-size-fits-all” issue; what works for one family might be disastrous for another. Though there is a lot of pressure in divorce to make choices quickly and pick the easy solution, it is important that parents take their time with this subject and really consider the needs of the children who are involved.

Do research the different types of common custody arrangements, such as joint custody, sole custody, physical custody and legal custody and consider and how each works both short and long term. Ideally, both divorcing parents keep an open line of communication while they are sorting out their custody arrangements — of course, this is not always the case.

Divorce mediation can be extremely helpful with opening that communication and helping parents to make the best decisions for the entire family. If you are going through a divorce and would like more information on child custody agreements, speaking with an experienced attorney may be very beneficial.
