My ex-spouse has asked to pick up our children, of whom we share custody, at a different time from that stated in our custody agreement. I’m fine with the change. Do we need to alter the agreement, or is a verbal agreement enough?
Practically, if this is a one-time, or two-time situation, a verbal agreement will suffice. If you would like this to be a long-term arrangement, you should definitely alter the custody agreement. If both parents agree to the change, they can jointly file a petition with the court and have it approved in a fairly simple process.
