Sometimes the biggest source of contention can be on the issue of fathers' rights. Custody agreements can already be a sore subject between a couple who is getting a divorce. But when a father is not married to the mother, custody rights are even more complicated. Sometimes the question to answer is "what does it mean to be a father?"
Whether in Arizona or another state, when it comes to child custody agreements, parents should understand that the agreements need to be followed. If the father is supposed to share custody with the mother, he needs to make sure that the schedule is followed. If the mother has sole custody but the father can see the children on certain holidays, she needs to drop the kids off per the arrangement.
How do you know that your custody agreement will make things easier for you and your estranged spouse once the divorce is complete? Will your support agreement ensure that your children will be financially supported? There are a lot of things to consider when it comes to your children. For example, once divorced, how much child support will you need? Or what if you and your former spouse disagree about holiday plans?
It doesn’t matter whether you have been married for a year or twenty years, dividing assets during a divorce is often complicated. In fact, this can be one of the more contentious points when a couple is separating.
