The parents cooperate in the implementation of the provisions of this consent order for the good of the child. Whenever it is deemed necessary to adjust or vary the time allocated to both parties or to take other measures with respect to the child, the parents act in the best interests of the child. Parents are also aware of the need to cooperate and consult each other with regard to the care and custody of the child in order to minimize the interruption of school education and the child`s activities. The weekly schedule is a 50/50 childcare plan in which the child spends one week with one parent and the following week with the other parent. This custody agreement allows parents to spend equal and longer periods with the child. However, it also requires both parents to live a little close to one another and at the child`s school, and the parents and/or the child may find it difficult to be separated for an entire week. A 50/50 schedule allows both parents to participate equally in the care of the child and allows the child to establish a close relationship with both parents. Here are six common examples: Parents agree that if the child is out of school or attends less than a full day of school due to bad weather or illness, the parent the child woke up with that morning is responsible for their care. If the day is a transition day, the transition period would be after-school, unless other agreements are reached. As with most shared custody plans, this requires your children to have fully functional bedrooms and housing in each of your homes.
During my career as an attorney on duty in New Jersey, I have always promoted two parents to reach an agreement on their children. In my opinion, a lawyer who does not do so (without urgent or special circumstances concerning one or both parents), is doing a disservice to his client and the child concerned. As a result, I thought it would be helpful for my law firm to share an example (and hypothetical) custody and parental leave agreement. If the parents agreed on such a plan, your lawyer would prepare a consent settlement recalling the agreement. After the parents and lawyers sign it, this document would be submitted to the New Jersey Supreme Court for review and execution by a judge. That would be the law. Please read the following example and contact my office to learn more about how we can help you. Often, a custodial lawyer who helps develop an agreement that meets the needs of both parents and the child can subsequently avoid confusion and controversy. Our model is comprehensive, but also versatile, as additional or alternative provisions regarding holiday visits, departure agreements, parental drug or alcohol use or temporary emergency injunctions can be included to meet the needs of each family.
In this childcare plan, children live two days with parent A, then two days with parent B, and then spend a three-day long weekend with parent A. Finally, the document gives parents the option to incorporate an existing child welfare agreement or establish a new child welfare agreement. . . .
