Consider child care when deciding on a custody arrangement

When you and your ex are trying to work out a child custody agreement, you're largely considering when each of you will be in charge of watching the kids. Don't forget that you may not always be able to do so. In that case, you'll need to consider childcare. To avoid future disagreements and conflicts, address this up front as part of your parenting plan.

Creative solutions for complex divorce issues
