Divorce: Decide who decides – educational and medical


The most common divorce dispute we hear is when one parent refuses to comply with the care plan set out during the marriage, after the divorce. They don't want to follow the diet or pay for the medical expenses, or just disagree to make life hard on their ex-spouse.

This is where a well-worded and documented divorce agreement comes in. There is more than just "physical" custody, e.g. where the child lives, there are also educational and medical decision making which needs to be detailed in writing in the custody papers. Don't take anything for granted, don't leave things open to interpretation or for change later. Later one person may have different priorities and it can be very costly and stressful to go back to court to try to correct it later.
