Q: I have been divorced for about 3 years now. Before the standard 50/50 law came into play. I pay 400 in child support,

And 130 in insurance a months. I work 24 hour shifts, so I take my son back the night before, resulting in less "nights" with him. Would it be worth going back, and keeping him overnight on work days to get 50/50 and a reduction in child support to have less financial stress?

Q: Is there a way to do a fast custody agreement before a divorce is filed?

I went to illinois because of issues with my inlaws in kentucky. I need to go back to my life in kentucky but am not wanting to without a custody agreement in place. My husband agreed to meet me at the courthouse to write one out, but i am not sure how to go about doing it.

Timothy Denison answered on Jan 19, 2020

Yes. You simply write out the agreement, specify times dates and holidays when they will be with each parent, you both sign it and have it notarized. Then you file it with your petition for dissolution when you are ready to file.
