START MAKING HOLIDAY PLANS FOR CHILD CUSTODY NOW
The holiday season is fast approaching. There are fewer than 100 days to Christmas. Even before then, you have to think about Halloween and Thanksgiving. All of these holidays are difficult enough to plan for, but when you have a child custody arrangement, they can be even more challenging. We know that you don’t want to have to deal with holiday stress, so you should think about reviewing the plans for the season now.
By starting to look at the schedule and figure out what is going to happen now instead of waiting until the last minute, you will have time to find solutions to any issues that might come up. One thing that you need to remember is that if you need a court date, you will need to be sure that you are leaving time to get the matter on the docket.
When you are looking at the holiday matters, think about the schedule. Find out if you have any conflicts with it. Remember that you and your ex have to do what is best for the kids. This might mean that you have to change the custody schedule for some matters.
For example, if your ex has out-of-town family coming to town, exchanging some custody days might benefit the children since they could spend time with those family members. Hopefully, your ex will be willing to work with you if you need to make some changes too.
Ultimately, you have to do what you think is best for your children. This might not always be what is easy, but seeing them thrive will be worth your efforts.
