The Nickerson Law
I am seeking legislature that enforces Annual Elective 50/50 Custody (AE50/50) in cases where there is not abuse. The solution is both simple and effective.
Parents both get 50% custody.
Either parent may elect for less custody. That is, a parent may see that based on school or an activity schedule that it is in the best interest of their child to temporarily have more custody with the other parent.
This shift in custody should never:
- Allow the other parent to declare more than 50% custody, or
- Be viewed as a long term “status quo”
Once annually, the parents can renegotiate custody (ideally outside court). If there is any dispute going forward, custody automatically reverts back to 50/50 for the protection of the children.
There are some more details on a custody agreement and the philosophy at ae5050.com. This content will be migrated to this site shortly.
