Custom button | clicking on a custom button on parent object will redirect to new record creation of child object with prepopulated record type

Hello,

#I have two objects.
> Standard object (contact) (Master)
> Custom object (cust__c) (Detail)
They both have master detail relationship

#Both of them have Two record types each
> contact has record type "Con1" and "con2"
> cust__c has record type "Cus1" and "Cus2"

#Other info
> the detail page layout is present on the parent object

#Requirement
> I want to make sure that if a new "cust__c" is created on contact with record type "Con1" then mandatorily it should be associated to "Cus1".
> Similaryly, "Con2" should be associated to "Cus2", 
> Both of the association should be mandatory for a user

#Solution required
I am looking for solution where clicking on a custom button on parent object will redirect to new record creation on of child object with prepopulated record type

Thank you for suggestion

A custom button is not your solution - use Publisher Actions.  You can set default field values with a Publisher Action without hacking things together or doing unsupported things like URL hacks.
