Online divorce site MyDivorcePapers.com (MDP) conducts divorce research and shares advice with people experiencing the breakup of a marriage. Working with many couples who have children together, the service has come to expect some awkward, difficult times around the holidays. To help deal with the matters surrounding holiday custody schedules, MDP representatives recommend the following:
First, Learn The Custody Schedule Inside And Out.
MDP points out that most conflicts arise between couples because one or both partners haven’t taken the time to learn what the holiday custody schedule dictates. While some states have a standard holiday custody plan for parents, couples may be part of an agreement inside or outside of court for how to handle custody during the holidays. Both would be wise to not deviate from it, the service notes.
“That means getting out the divorce settlement or divorce papers and learning the times and dates of all custody exchanges, the place they are to occur, and which parties are okayed to be present,” a company representative said. “Follow it to the letter, and if you do need to deviate, make sure it happens in advance, and in writing.”
Also, Coordinate With The Other Spouse On Travel.
Planning to hit the road with kids in tow? MDP urges the holiday custodial parent to coordinate with their ex on travel documentation, written consent forms, and anything else needed in the event of an emergency. “Also, it’s important for your own protection that you don’t bring along a significant other who might be prevented from staying overnight while the kids are present,” the rep stated.
MDP adds that “if you’re the free parent, cooperate with the custodial to ensure that everything he needs to take care of the kids over the break is accounted for,” the rep said. “This spirit of cooperation is as important for the child’s well-being as anything. They’ve already experienced a massive shakeup. They don’t need added tension during a time that’s supposed to be happy for them.”
