Child Custody Help
How long have you been involved in your child custody case? If you've already started the process, you may be familiar with something called a "continuance". That is basically a fancy way of saying, "Come back in six more weeks!"
Custody cases can take a long time to resolve when you aren't able to agree on all of the details of your custody arrangements. Long custody battles can be stressful and frustrating.
Whether you're just starting out or you've been in and out of court for many years, you need access to the best custody help and resources available. You need to kind of help and resources that can get you the time you want with your children.
Custody X Change provides that kind of help.
Your custody arrangements are the most important aspect of your divorce and you should create your parenting plan with careful thought and consideration.
After all, once the court approves your plan, you will be legally obligated to follow it until your child reaches adulthood. You will want to make sure you include as many details as possible so you don't leave anything out.
It is common to feel overwhelmed and stressed out about making a parenting plan. Where do you even start?
Custody X Change is software that allows parents to set up parenting plans and custody agreements.
The software is intuitive and easy to use so that parents can easily set up the right arrangement for their situation.
Once you install the software, you simply start entering the requested information and the software does all the work for you.
If you need to make changes, you don't have to start all over. Revising your plan is simple.
You also won't have to worry about leaving anything out when you use Custody X Change. You just follow a few easy instructions and can feel confident about your parenting plan.
Once you are finished, you will be able to print out your professional looking documents to present to your ex, the mediator, or the court.
"Every other weekend, from 6 p.m. Friday until 6 p.m. Sunday, alternating holidays in even and odd years..." Sometimes this is what a judge or a mediator will scribble down on a generic form and you will be forced to comply with it.
Wouldn't it be nice to customize the schedule to meet your child's needs? With Custody X Change, you can create a calendar that shows the specific dates and times your child will spend with each of you.
You can create the schedule years in advance. Or, you can sit down and look at an entire year and map out the holidays and vacation times so your child will be able to spend the optimal amount of time with each parent.
You will also be able to use Custody X Change to run and print out time-share percentage reports. This is a great tool when you want to show how much time either of you actually has the child. You can even block out the time your child is in school if you would like.
When you have such a detailed calendar, you will be able to spend less time wondering or bickering about which weekend is "yours" and be able to spend more time focusing on your child.
The schedule is organized and concise so there won't be any misunderstandings or disagreements about the times each of you will have your child.
Assuming your ex is not one of your favorite people (after all, you are getting divorced for a reason) you may find it uncomfortable (if not impossible) to sit down face to face as you try to work out the details of your custody agreement.
When you use Custody X Change to create your parenting plan, you can print out the documents (or even alternative versions of them) and let your ex deal with the papers instead of you directly.
He or she can review the documents, jot down any requested changes or revisions, and return them to you. You can then review and consider the proposed changes. You can continue negotiating in this professional, peaceful manner until an agreement is reached.
The sooner you can agree with your ex on your custody arrangements, the sooner your case will be finalized and you can move on with your life.
If you need to attend mediation, you can also bring the documents with you and show your proposal to the mediator.
