How Do Child Custody Rights Work

Child custody rights are difficult because emotions are involved. You have rights as the parent of your child. Without the formal agreements filed with the court, you are on your own when it comes to ENFORCING your rights as a parent. Parents can make all sorts of decisions together, but without it being on file at the court, it is difficult to enforce provisions even when you have verbally agreed to things such as;

• How much time will you get to see your child,
• Where will you be able to visit,
• How long will the visit be,
• Will it be overnight? Multiple days/nights? Supervised?
• Who will drop off and who will pick up?
• Where will you exchange children?

How do you communicate with your ex-spouse or girlfriend/boyfriend about your child? If this “verbal” agreement is not finalized through the courts, the arrangement can turn against you quickly and for no reason. Questions come up like:

• Does my baby’s Daddy have any rights to my child?
• Does my baby’s Momma have any rights to my child?
