Child Custody & Visitation During the Holidays
Holidays are supposed to be a time of togetherness, but if you’re a separated or divorced family, sometimes it can feel like the complete opposite. You just want to have quality time with your loved ones! However, it can be important to remember that your children can tell when their parents aren’t getting along. The holidays are a time for creating lasting memories, so be sure to follow these tips if you want to have a stress-free holiday season with your family.
- Review the Custody Order
Now is the time to review the terms of your child custody order and visitation schedule so that there are no surprises or misunderstandings. Most holiday custody disputes can be resolved by simply consulting the custody order and working together!
- Share Your Plans with the Other Parent
We have seen countless custody disputes that could’ve been avoided by both parents simply communicating with one another what their desired plans for the holidays are in advance. Open and honest communication are key to creating harmony for the parents and children!
- Be Willing to Compromise
Both parents undoubtedly want to spend as much time as possible with the children over the holidays. The ability to be flexible and compromise will help alleviate any undue stress on yourself and the children, and in turn, the other parent will be more willing to do the same in the future.
