Custody arrangements can be complicated and difficult to arrange, especially during the summer. When your children are out of school or either parent wants to go on vacation, figuring out a solid plan that benefits your child and allows time with both parents can be difficult. A Boca Raton divorce attorney can help you navigate the confusing nature of summer custody arrangements with ease. Our team at Schuttler, Greenberg, & Mullins is experienced in custody arrangements and with our help, you can avoid any conflict you may face and make this summer a great one.
Here are some tips for planning custody arrangements for the summer:
- Don’t violate your existing custody order
- Pick a plan and stick to it
- Give adequate notice
- Exchange custody in a safe place
- Let kids communicate with the other parent
- Seek modifications if necessary
Issues may arise because one parent fails to notify the other they are taking the child on vacation out of town. Doing so will result in serious ramifications which simply aren’t worth it. If you are insistent on taking your child away for a length or time or distance which isn’t allotted in your summer custody arrangement, seeking a modification is your best bet to avoid any serious conflict or consequences. Summer can be hard on you as a parent overall, because you are likely not used to spending so much time away from your child or knowing your child is making memories without you. However, it is important to consider your child’s best interests and follow strict guidelines you set with your ex-spouse.
