It’s never easy to figure out a child custody schedule, especially
during the busy holiday season. Divorced couples often argue about which
parent will get to spend the holiday with the kids. When parents get into
major disputes about custody arrangements, it can ruin the holiday for
the entire family. In this blog, we explain a few common custody disputes
that divorced parents tend to encounter over the holiday season.
If you will be traveling out of town to take your kids to visit close friends
or family, you need to consult your custody agreement to see if it is
Custody agreements sometimes contain provisions that prevent a parent from traveling out-of-state
with a child. If you travel with your kids and it is a violation of your
custody agreement, you can end up facing serious consequences in court.
Although it is normal for both parents to want to spend time with the kids
on the holidays, some custody agreements specify certain holidays and
times of day that the children must be with the custodial parent. Other
custody agreements alternate the holidays between parents. No matter what
your agreement says, it is important to make sure that both parents know
when and where the kids will be during the holidays.
Arguments Over Gifts
When parents get divorced, their kids usually get two sets of gifts for
the holidays. Unfortunately, some divorced parents will purposely buy
gifts that they know the other parent will not approve of. Do not deliberately
purchase gifts for your kids that you know will cause future conflicts
between you and your ex.
