A child custody order can be short – as little as half a page – or very long – running many dozens of pages. Child custody orders typically direct how parents:
–Share responsibility for making major decisions that affect the children
–Share time with the children during the school year
–Share time with the children during the summer months
–Share time with the children during holidays and birthdays
–Communicate about the children
–Communicate their vacation plans
–Transport the children for custody exchanges
–Notify one another if they plan to relocate
Parents need not follow the order so long as they both agree to changes. But in the event parents disagree, the order provides a framework that enables them to co-parent effectively while minimizing conflict.
