Joanie and Chachi are negotiating a solution to their divorce. Chachi doesn`t want to write checks every month for the next 18 years, so he agrees to sell everything he expects to be allocated to the real estate colony and use the money he receives to pay an advance, a lump sum payment of all his support duty, if Joanie agrees not to ask him for more money in the future. Under the laws of most states, Joanie, if she needs more child care afterwards – even if the necessity is due to her reckless waste of the entire package – can go back to court and ask the court to charge Chachi more than the lump sum on which they agreed. At this point, the fact that Chachi abandoned valuables to pay the initial lump sum payment does not matter to the court. Judges do not determine the right to custody of children on the basis of fairness to parents; it is determined by the needs of the child. In your province or territory, family justice services, such as mediation, may also be offered to help you and the other parent obtain an out-of-court agreement. If you ignore some of these important considerations when developing your child welfare contract, you may face considerable challenges if you are the financially responsible parent for the costs that have been left out of the agreement. Although child care may be changed at any time, the calculation of child care would provide a different amount from the current order if you deviated from the initial child assistance order (increased or decreased), a subsequent change may be more difficult to obtain. It might also be more difficult to get an order for a parent to pay half of certain expenses if you didn`t include it in the original order. It is therefore important that you have legal counsel who can guide you through this process and work towards a thorough and detailed agreement. Insert this clause if the subordinate elements are with a relative all the time or most of the time.
