Often the best solution from the point of view of the child is the exercise of parental authority by both parents. However, this requires that they prepare an agreement on how to exercise parental authority, which will be in accordance with the best interests of the child and convince the court that the carers will cooperate with each other.

The agreement can be made in any form, even oral statements made by the court during the hearing. The key is its content, which must include information such as: all the child's places of residence, arrangements for each parent's contact with the child, the manner of exercising parental authority, ie what actions and decisions parents must take together, and which do not require the consent of both of them. The Law Offices of Kyle R.

Under the agreement, additional arrangements may also be written, for example regarding maintenance.

I help them to understand each other, determine the best scenario from the point of view of the child, verify the real consequences of the discussed solutions, and write a concrete, unambiguous and acceptable document for both parties in Newport Beach.
