Child Custody Additional Provisions
California Child Custody Additional Provisions are very important consideration that you should address with your original child custody order. The child custody agreement that you and the other parent enter into will have will lay out how you, the other parent, and your child will be interacting on a daily basis. You and the other parent should take the time to ensure that both of you completely understand how both of you intend to raise your child. Including specific provisions in your custody agreement is a good way to thoroughly cover every aspect of your responsibilities as co-parents.
Before you begin to draft your California Child Custody Additional Provisions, take the time to think about the things that are important to you and your child and what aspects of custody you expect both parents to respect. Your child custody order should include at least the following provisions:
- The type of legal custody that will be implemented. Legal custody refers to the decisions making responsibilities for the child. These responsibilities can be given to one or both parents.
- The type of physical custody that will be implemented. Physical custody refers to the day-to-day care taking responsibilities for the child. These responsibilities can be given to one or both parents.
- A method to address making modifications to the custody agreement if circumstances are to change in the future and the custody agreement needs to be changed.
- A basic visitation schedule outlining the time the child will spend with each parent.
- Which school the child will attend. Educational choices can be influenced by other factors and should be carefully considered.
- Any religious affiliation that the child will be exposed to. Parents may have different opinions about what, if any religion, they want their child to practice.
