FAQ - Legal Decision Making and Parenting Time (Custody)

What if the parents agree how legal decision making should be decided?

Usually it is best if parents can agree on decisions about raising children after a legal separation or dissolution of marriage (divorce). The court usually accepts the mutual decision of the parents. However, the decision of the court about legal decision making must be made in the best interests of the child. After review of the terms of the agreement, the duty imposed on the court by law may require that the court not accept the agreement of the parents.
