Child custody agreement: it can be an act of love
It’s the song parents across the nation report that their children can’t let go of: “Let It Go,” from the 2013 movie “Frozen.” Sung by Idina Menzel (known to John Travolta as “Adele Dazeem”), the song won an Oscar, a Grammy and the hearts of millions.
Perhaps surprisingly, the song has even captured Taye Diggs’ heart, the ex-husband of Menzel. Diggs recently said the popular tune has become something of a mantra for him after the split from Menzel and their divorce, which was finalized late last year.
Though the couple split after a decade-long marriage, “we’re still there as a family,” he says. He, Menzel and their five-year-old son Walker have eternal ties. Though he and Menzel had problems which eventually ended their marriage, it was ended amicably and with a focus on Walker.
“He’s our main objective,” says Diggs of his son. “He’s what’s most important for us.”
Many divorcing parents have that same attitude. They agree with their former spouse that it’s time to end the marriage, but that their roles as parents bind them together and that they must cooperate for the good of the child they both love. So with their family law attorneys, they work out custody plans that enable both parents to share love and time with the child (or children).
In that way, the rights and interests of both parents are honored, but above all, everyone protects the interests of the child first and foremost. Done properly, a child custody agreement can be an act of love.
