Joint Parenting Agreement – What is Involved, as the ISBA Tells It

Question: What is involved in creating a joint parenting agreement?

Answer: In cases of joint custody, a joint parenting agreement lists each parent’s responsibilities and determines child support. The agreement spells out how the parents will make major decisions for the children, such as their education, health care, religious training and any disagreements they have with regards to enforcement. The joint parenting agreement is usually created by the parents, with the help of their attorneys, and then proposed to the court which, in turn, makes the final ruling.
