Co Parent Agreement

Written By: Chris - Sep• 14•21

According to Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders (GLAD), New England`s legal authority on family matters for LGBT parents, co-parenting agreements should be followed by ten basic guidelines: be honest about existing relationships, regardless of legal terms; Consider the argument from the perspective of the child or children; Try to find a voluntary solution; Try to maintain the continuity of the child; Remember that separation is difficult: seriously investigate allegations of abuse to determine what is best for the child; respect their agreements; The absence of legal documents is not decisive for the problems; Handle disputes as a last resort; and treat homophobic laws and feelings as taboo. You can wait until you start writing an education contract before you`ve defined details with the other parent, or you can create projects earlier in the process. Ideally, parents should work closely together instead of unsubscribing at the end. Even if you and your co-parent have documented a complete and comprehensive agreement, the document has no purpose if both parents do not make a concerted effort to follow it. Give you and your children a leg in the world by holding on to all the agreed elements from the beginning. If you need extra help sorting out the co-parenting issues that have occurred in your family, you should find a co-parenting program near you. Divorce is a difficult but necessary ordeal that you have to endure when a marriage no longer works. Add the kids and there`s a whole other layer of choices you need to follow.
