Delaware Shared Custody Agreement

The purpose of any parental protection agreement is to ensure that all aspects of a child`s physical and emotional needs are taken into account. No family situation will ever provide ideal circumstances, but parents must make the most of their broken family by ensuring that their children`s “Best Interests” are at the centre of concerns. Both parents must prioritize the needs of children over themselves and accept an agreement that allows their children to receive the best possible education. Legal Serbs are considered common or unique. In cases of segregation, a parent is designated as a sole administrator and can make decisions on behalf of the child without the involvement of the other parent. In shared custody cases, parents are expected to discuss their differences of opinion and make a joint decision about their children`s needs. However, even in the event of isolation, a parent has the right to obtain, upon request, information about the child`s health, education and other important information about his or her child. If sole custody has been granted in advance and a parent does not feel that the sole administrator is making reasonable decisions for the child, you can apply for a change in custody. In the absence of a custody decision, parents have shared custody as part of their natural parental rights. Except in cases of serious domestic violence, mental illness or other exceptional events, the Court has a strong preference to allow both parents to play a role in their children`s decision-making process.

Delaware courts provide family allowances based on a specific formula that takes into account each parent`s monthly income, child care, child care expenses, health insurance costs, child`s school fees and other details. In most cases, supervised visits are temporary. Although the exact order of visits will vary, the judge may order an expert to observe the parent during certain visits, or visits could be monitored by a parent for a few months – and if there is no obvious problem, visits will likely be left unattended. Often, the parent has more frequent and/or longer visits than the parent before going to court. The other parent may even end up with shared custody. Experts have found that it is in their best interest to actively involve both parents in children`s lives in terms of emotional state and development. In this context, Delaware courts will generally try to keep both parents involved even if they are no longer a couple, and this is most often by granting shared custody. Shared custody can be classified in one of three ways: in the absence of ongoing court proceedings, request supervised access before proceeding. We strongly recommend that you speak to a child care lawyer to find out what you should prove for the visits to be monitored and how long the supervised visits would last, based on the facts of your case. The Court of Justice decides custody of the children in accordance with what is in the best interests of the child and where the parents can set aside their differences and cooperate in establishing an agreed education plan, which is certainly in the best interests of the child. A parent who has committed domestic violence against the child, parent or other member of the household generally does not have sole or shared custody unless other acts of violence have been committed.

In addition, the parent must prove that: Whether the parent has completed a counselling program or is in the best interests of the child to be granted custody.1 If you are fleeing domestic violence and temporarily leaving your children behind until the children are directly exposed to serious abuse, a judge should not consider this evidence of abandonment of custody or visitation proceedings1.
