Co-Parenting Law in St. Charles

Get Help from a St. Charles Family Attorney Today: (636) 400-1177

When two parents decide to get a divorce, they’ll likely each share in the responsibilities of raising their children through an arrangement known as co-parenting. Generally, the courts do everything in their power to preserve equal responsibility between both parents as long as both will provide the child with a nurturing and positive environment that will foster their upbringing. Co-parenting is an agreement that takes a considerable amount of willingness to work together in order to maintain consistency, and that means lots of negotiation and patience with each other.

Creating a co-parenting plan can sometimes require assistance, and making sure your rights to both be involved in your child’s life as well as get equal treatment from the other parent is important.

Co-Parenting Agreement Provisions

No two families have an identical situation or set of circumstances, and therefore, no two parenting provisions should be exactly alike. The key to a strong, long-lasting co-parenting agreement is to make sure your terms are specific and detailed, leaving as little gray area as possible.

Some things you should take into consideration when creating a co-parenting agreement include:

  • Child custody (joint or sole?)
  • Visitation time
  • Communication guidelines
  • Decisions regarding education and environment
  • Discipline and reward standards

Some couples need an agreement that details things down to the letter for virtually any situation that arises, while others just need a more general set of guidelines to follow. Working with a skilled attorney can help you determine just what kind of an agreement you need and help you work out the terms to reach it.
