Like any custody orders, the court will make the final decision based on the best interest of the child.  If you can reach an agreement regarding the drop off point for your child, the court will usually approve the agreement to encourage the parties to work together.  If you can't reach an agreement, then the judge can rule on your request.  It is legal and appropriate to request a safe, convenient, and neutral point for the exchange of children.  Judges typically use the homes as pick-up and drop-off points, but they do frequently designate other locations, especially if it helps the child and the parties.
