#1: Meeting Your Family’s Needs

Judges always put your kids’ best interests first when they’re making custody determinations, but only you know your family. You know what activities your kids are involved in, where their friends are, when they’re most comfortable – and although the judge will do his or her best to create an ideal custody arrangement, it’s better if you and your spouse work together to create a plan that works best for your kids.

#2: Saving Time and Money on Legal Fees

Litigation is time-consuming… and it’s expensive. When you and your spouse can reach an agreement, you’re saving hours of prep time for your lawyer (and you’re keeping that cash in your pocket). It’s always okay to come to your lawyer when you and your spouse can’t agree – but if you can, you’ll be better off than you would waiting on a court date, providing evidence and testimony, and paying your lawyer to fight with your spouse’s lawyer in court.

Your cooperation now doesn’t just set a good example for your kids. It shows your spouse that you’re willing and able to negotiate.
