The holidays are a time for family, friends, and fun. But if you're like most parents, you might be wondering how to make the holidays work with your custody schedule. With a holiday review plan, you can prepare for the holidays and help make your family’s time together a bit more special.
You Might Already Have a Holiday Time-Sharing Schedule
Does your child's custody plan already have a holiday time-sharing schedule? Many custody agreements include a separate schedule for holidays, including which parent gets the children on which holidays and how vacations are split. Before making plans, reviewing this schedule is important so you know where your children will spend their holiday time.
Reviewing your current custody plan can also help your family refresh their knowledge of their child’s time-sharing schedule and create plans for the holiday season.
Fostering Communication with Your Co-Parent
Reviewing your custody agreement before the holidays can also help foster communication with your co-parent. Communicating about holiday plans early on can prevent any misunderstandings or conflicts during the busy holiday season. And when both parents are on the same page, it can create a smoother and more enjoyable holiday experience for the whole family.
Proper Planning Can Lead to a Better Holiday Season
Finally, proper planning and reviewing your custody agreement before the holidays can lead to a better holiday season for your family. It can help ensure that important events and traditions are not missed, and it can also make logistics easier - such as coordinating travel arrangements or deciding who will handle holiday meals and gift buying.
So don't wait until the last minute - take some time to review your custody agreement and make a plan for how you'll handle the holidays. It can make all the difference in creating a memorable and enjoyable holiday season for your family.
