If you’ve decided to divorce or separate from your spouse, one of the most important aspects to take into account is how it will influence your children. To sort that out in a smart way, you and your soon-to-be-ex-spouse will need to work out a custody schedule and consider granting your ex-partner a temporary custody agreement. That is to say, Temporary Custody Agreement is a document that allows temporary custody of a child to another person.   

What do you need a temporary custody agreement for

There are various reasons why a parent may grant a temporary custody agreement to another person. Some of them include:

  • Separation/divorce: soon-to-be-ex-partners may decide to grant a temporary custody agreement until the court decides on their child custody case;
  • Family violence: A temporary custody agreement may be issued by the court if threats are made against the child;
  • Money issues: when a parent is unemployed and/or doesn’t have finances to provide for their child, temporary custody may be granted to another person;
  • Health issues: when a parent is sick, they may ask a friend or a family member to temporarily take custody of their child;
  • Busy lifestyle: when a parent is excessively busy at work, they may ask a trusted person to temporarily take guardianship of their child.
