San Diego- There is a saying that, "good fences make good neighbors", San Diego Divorce attorney Brent. J. Pfeiffer, believes that, " good child custody agreements make great parents:".
San Diego Child Custody Stipulations
A San Diego child custody agreement can be created or modified at any time, as long as the custodial parents are in agreement, there is an active court case, the San Diego family law judge signs off on the agreement and the child is a minor. A child custody stipulation (agreement), can be drawn up by your attorney prior to the filing of a motion for a child custody order or after the motion has been filed in the San Diego Family Law Court.
San Diego Family Court Services
Generally if San Diego child custody motion is requested a Request for Order (FL-300) will be filed and prior to the child custody hearing both parents will be ordered to attend San Diego Family Court Services, where they will be interviewed by an Family Court Services employee, who after meeting with both parents will create a proposed custody plan which will be mailed to your child custody attorney and the San Diego family law judge. The San Diego Family Court Services child custody plan is just a proposal which you can tell the Court either your in agreement with or why you are not in agreement. Often parties in a child custody dispute will have their attorney's write up a child custody stipulation that incorporates the terms of the Family Court Services proposal or a unique plan which is just as detailed.
Which brings us back to attorney Brent Pfeiffer's saying that, " a good child custody agreement makes great parents,". Much like fences a detailed custody agreement will outline the limits and boundaries of the shared custody agreement. A great child custody stipulation should leave no room for interpretation, it should provide both parents with clear guidelines as to when the children are exchanged, who has the children on what holidays, what the time share is and where and for how long the children will be with the parent. A great child custody attorney will help you anticipate any child custody issues and will address them in the custody agreement. These detailed fences in the child custody stipulation help make great parents because each parent should be able to know the rules and there should be no arguments between the custodial parents, because they agreed to the terms which are clear . San Diego Divorce attorney Brent Pfeiffer says that, " one of the most heart-breaking aspects in a child custody matter occurs when the children observe the parents fighting over child exchanges and other details of child custody. While the San Diego Court will admonish parents if the Courts becomes aware of behavior the unfortunate truth is that it is common for custodial parents to argue over the terms of a poorly written child custody agreement."
A well written child custody agreement will also often negate any need to return to San Diego Family Law court to clarify the terms of the child custody agreement.Often a detailed and well written San Diego child custody stipulation will make a difficult situation better and help make great parents.
A good parent knows what matters, a great parent does their best to make sure that what matters is protected and nurtured. Well written child custody agreements help make great parents.
