Parenting Agreements

Peaceful Parenting. Would you and the other parent benefit from a document that clearly sets out the rights and responsibilities of each parent when it comes to co-parenting your children? A Parenting Agreement is a guide for parents trying to co-parent their children without being a couple. A Parenting Agreement is a legally enforceable contract focused on your family’s specific circumstances and needs. A well-crafted Agreement can help you avoid conflict.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if the other parent and I have not yet agreed on all the parenting issues?
Both spouses must agree to a Parenting Agreement.  However, we can assist you in drafting a proposed Parenting Agreement that you provide to your spouse for review.  A proposed Parenting Agreement is a good place to start in your discussions and negotiations about parenting issues.
Why can’t we just write down our custody terms and each sign that document?
You may certainly do that.  However, you would be better served by having a North Carolina attorney draft a specific and legally enforceable agreement in order to avoid confusion and conflict and to ensure it is enforceable.
What if we want to change the terms of our Parenting Agreement?
You and the other parent can always modify, revise or revoke a Parenting Agreement by mutual agreement.
