What Is Child Custody and Do I Really Need A Custody Agreement?

You should always have a comprehensive custody agreement filed with the court. There are two types of custody: physical and legal. Joint legal custody means that both parents have the equal right to make decisions for their child(ren) together. While two parents can have joint legal custody, one parent can have primary physical custody. This means that one parent holds the primary address for the child(ren) and the other parent has parenting time or visitation. Shared physical custody, when parents have equal time in their home with the child(ren), is also a common option.

When parents are together and getting along very well, it doesn’t seem like there is a need for a formal custody agreement. However, circumstances can change rather quickly though, and this is why Wolf & Shore Law Group, in West Haven, CT, always encourages clients to have an agreement in place with the court. It’s likely easier to discuss entering an agreement if you are on good terms with your co-parent. To clarify, custody agreements would only ever be entered in court if it is found to be in the child(ren)’s best interest. Generally, it protects both parents too. Think of a custody agreement, or a parenting plan. For example, this can be used as a baseline to refer to if there are ever any questions about parenting time, responsibilities, or the like.
