Sherri Donovan of Sherri Donovan & Associates writes that the resolution of child custody, visitation and support is inevitably more complex when special needs children are involved. The uncertainty about the nature and cost of the child's future needs and expenses, parents' conflicting views of their child's diagnosis and the child's need for a consistent home environment make it more challenging to arrive at a consensus and draft a divorce agreement that will serve the parties well into the future.
