Communicating well with your spouse and agreeing on your children’s custody will save you time and money. A good relationship with each parent is in the best interest of your children with an amicable relationship between you and your spouse to be able to communicate well and make decisions without causing disruption to your children’s lives. Your children’s custody may be sole custody with the non-custodial parent granted specific hours of visitation.
