Looking for overall criterias. Also some examples of what a clientele wanted but cannot be out in.Can you add details about who can or cannot help with child care? Can one add that access to the other's resources be permitted? What kinds of restrictions? Can you please provide examples?
Your question is not clear. Custody agreements detail the living arrangements between custodial and non-custodial parents. There can also be language regarding visitation schedules. The agreement can be as detailed as the parties desire and include language regarding the sharing of information about medical issues and schooling. It is difficult to give a full answer based on the wording of the question. Good luck.

While I appreciate your desire to start at the beginning, I like to start clients off with "what do you want?" They usually offer what they can accept or what they think the other parent will let them get away with. And I ask my question again. What can you put in an agreement? Anything you want. But is it beneficial or enforceable are two separate questions. An experienced attorney can ask the first question and help answer the second and third.

You must really be more specific but keep in mind vacations, holidays, relocation, birthdays, special occasions. Any type of restrictions that you want can be added, such as regarding sleep overs, etc. Custody should also be specific about who gets the right to make decisions and what happens if parents disagree. As for child care you can put restrictions, or if there is a child support element to this agreement then you can add costs, etc. Contact an attorney as there are a myriad of things that these agreements can contain and they are all specific to the individual.
If you feel this is the "best" answer or is "helpful," please indicate. Since I am limited to the information you provide, I cannot guarantee the accuracy of the answer. To the extent additional or different facts exist, the response might possibly change. You should seek the advise of an attorney who can explore all aspects of your question. This communication does not form an attorney client relationship.
There is no comprehensive list. Each agreement is different based upon the situation and the needs of the clients. Contact an attorney who will help you in your specific situation.
