Establishing A Parenting Agreement In New York

Relationships between parents do not end when your romantic relationship is over. Coming to an agreement regarding custody and visitation saves both the time and expenses of litigation and helps prevent the further deterioration of parenting relationships.

At the Buffalo, New York, Venzon Law Firm PC, our attorneys help parents craft parenting agreements that preserve and enhance parent-child bonds and avoid the conflict and animosity often seen during courtroom custody battles.

Empowering Clients To Make Their Own Decisions

It’s your family and as a parent you should decide how your children are raised.

However, once a court is involved, a judge who has little knowledge of you, your children or your lifestyle has the authority to make important decisions regarding where your children live and how much parenting time you have. Judges’ determinations are based on their perceptions of the best interests of the child, but they are handicapped by their inability to know the intimate details of your family’s dynamics, the needs of your specific child, or your family’s culture and traditions.

Venzon Law Firm PC encourages clients to keep the decision-making power in their own hands. Working with your child’s other parent to develop mutually agreed-upon parenting plans enables you to make decisions that are right for your family.

Parenting Plans

Venzon Law Firm PC drafts comprehensive parenting plans that provide detailed custody and visitation schedules. We are proactive in identifying likely areas of future conflict — such as where weekends, holidays and vacations will be spent, who will attend school events and how transportation will be provided — and address those issues accordingly.

Parenting plans can also discuss child support, communication between parents, processes for making decisions regarding the child and protocol for proceeding in the event one parent needs to deviate from the agreed-upon schedule or decision-making processes.

Parenting agreements are legally binding court-approved contracts; enforcement mechanisms are available and specific modification procedures exist.
