We recently discussed why you need to have your holiday visitation agreement in place as early as possible. This is a very important matter in child custody cases that are easy to overlook if there aren’t holidays looming. We also know that you want to spend as much time as possible with your child, and we will work hard to make that happen with options for custody that work.
When it comes to holidays and all of the other days of the year, trying to determine how your child is going to divide the time between both parents is a challenge. Of course, you probably want to spend those days with your child so that you can build memories. On the other hand, your ex probably wants the same thing.
In these cases, thinking of the child is always best. Because you and your ex will need to split the holidays, which can be done on a rotating basis so that you have your child on the holiday one year and your ex has the child the next year, you need to work out ways that your child can enjoy both parents.
Solutions for Family Court Custody
If you and your ex can’t stand to be together, then spending a holiday together might not be ideal. Instead, you and your ex could come up with a plan that lets your child have contact with both parents. This could mean a phone call or a video chat, for example.
In all custody cases, there is a chance that you and your ex can’t work things out on your own. When that occurs, we can help you find legal ways to get the decisions made so that you can go back to enjoying your child as he or she grows up.
