But I’ve Heard the Judge Has the Final Say? Isn’t that True?

Not really. Judges love it if you and your co-parent figure out what works for you, since judges understand that if you’re not both satisfied, there are likely to be problems in the future. If you and your co-parent don’t agree and you ask a judge to make a ruling, the judge will do so, but you and your co-parent still have a lot of power to either follow that ruling or not, and to either take out your frustration on each other in other ways, or not. So you and your co-parent really are the ones with the final say.
