You can try to clarify something else on your own, or return to mediation at any time to resolve disagreements. Even if you keep coming back to mediation, it will probably still be cheaper than going to court. However, it remains a fundamental point that such accusations, when they increase dramatically in certain parts of the country, often have dramatic consequences on the time a father can spend with his children after separation and on the circumstances in which that time is spent. If the number of nights of shared care changes, simply let CMS know if the change affects the shared care band used to reduce child maintenance in the table below. A „joint care agreement“, which aims to share time 50/50 between parents, is unusual, but it is becoming more and more frequent. The court will always come from the starting point that it is in the best interests of the child to have the active participation of both parents in their lives. However, how this regime will work in practice must be part of the broader assessment. In order for time to be distributed equitably in practice and for the child to be able to alternate smoothly between the parents, good communication between the parents is necessary. In order for a child to live his life between two houses, the organization and willingness of both parents to make it work is necessary. There will be the forgotten books at the other`s house at home and the friend`s birthday party, which means that the normal layout must be removed. These daily problems require constant communication and the impact on the child must be carefully considered in case of a bad relationship between the parents. This issue was considered by Russell J in F v L (Permission to Relocation: Appeal)  EWHC 1377 (Fam) during the hearing of the mother`s appeal against a decision rejecting her application for a departure permit and giving the father an order for joint custody of child arrangements.
Russell J noted that the trial judge`s approach to allocating the child`s time was „undifferentiated, too easy“ and that decisions for joint care were too often made to respect the presumption of parental involvement. Russell J went so far as to say that dividing a child`s time between two antagonistic houses and not supporting each other was incompatible with the well-being and well-being of the child. One can therefore have the „right“ to a common system of egalitarian care. But this must be in addition to the „responsibility“ of reconciling the time spent by the child with a parent and the quality of that time, taking into account everything that goes hand in hand with a joint custody agreement. Research has shown that if children have experience of shared custody, they have better relationships with both parents and are more satisfied with their lives. It has also been shown that even in the event of strong hostilities between parents, shared custody of children works well. The terminology of orders has changed a lot in recent years, which contributes to confusion about what they all mean. The first thing to know is that the notions of custody, stay and living with order of arrangement for children all mean the same thing.
They are all different ways of saying that a child lives with that parent or guardian….
