    Separation and Custody

    What happens with custody of a child when the parents separate? If the parents do end up getting together is the agreement just void? If they end up getting divorced does the custody arrangement still stand or must the couple go back to court?

    Custody will generally be determined by the court. However if the couples have an agreement in place, the court will give great deference to that agreement.
