South Carolina Child Custody & Extracurricular Activities

South Carolina Child Custody & Extracurricular Activities

One of the biggest sticking points in raising children together after a divorce is the matter of extracurricular activities: which ones will they do, who will be responsible for the costs and for getting the child to the activity, and whose time will the activities come out of? Take care to clarify these details within your South Carolina child custody agreement.

Which Activities, When, and with Whom?

For whatever reason, parents may not agree on the type of activity a child may become involved with. Perhaps one parent thinks that an activity is too dangerous or not worth the time spent pursuing it. Beyond the legal significance of which parent may have the final say in such a matter, what is more important is that no matter the result, each parent must act in the best interest of the child in supporting their pursuit.

No matter what extracurricular activity a child may end up performing, it is important for each parent to support the child’s interests. This includes paying for the cost of the activities, transporting the child to and from the activities and understanding that the child comes first no matter the parents’ concerns. To help make things easier, set up a clear consensus within your South Carolina child custody agreement.

Easier Said Than Done

While many disputes about extracurricular activities may be resolved with a direct conversation between two parents, there are many stumbling blocks along the way, mostly related to the details of support. Child custody is very valuable to many parents. No parent wants to lose out on time spent with their child or forced to pay more than they can handle for extracurricular activities they might not agree with.

There is no simple one size fits all legal answer in these instances. The best case scenario is that all parties come to an amicable resolution in the child custody case. The worst-case scenario involves the parties having to go to court to have a judge resolve the issue. The more realistic option is that both sides consult their child custody attorneys to address the concerns of each party. A legally binding agreement can be drawn up for each side to sign and enforce against the other if it is ever broken. This type of agreement will typically encompass who pays for what, who is responsible for transportation and if there are any time concessions to cope with time spent on extracurricular activities.

    I’ve tried Phallomax for a quite long time. No doubts it’s probably the best remedy for “that” problem. Received it from the UK very quickly and I live in Belgium. Well worth of money.

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
