In the beginning, divorcing parents often find ways to share their time with their children. However, in the long-term, developing a workable child custody agreement requires the parents to not only consider a solution for the present situation, but also one that focuses on the child’s future. When young children are involved in a dissolution, it can be challenging for New Mexico parents to consider the needs the child will have a year from now, five years from now or even a decade later. Thus, some parents might have to revisit a child custody arrangement, even if the original terms were amicably agreed to.
Having a fair, workable and updated child custody agreement not only confirms that divorced parents are complying with the agreed upon terms, but it also ensures that the needs and interests of the children involved are protected.
