If unmarried parents agree to a custody set up, can they file the complaint and the answer and decree all at the same time together?
1 Answer from Attorneys
Yes. Any lawyer should be able to put together either a Complaint/Answer/Decree package or a Joint Petition (my firm does not do those for ethics reasons). The self-help center forms are set up to facilitate doing a custody schedule in the original paperwork. See http://www.familylawselfhelpcenter.org/self-help.
