Preparing for the Holiday Season as a Co-Parent
It’s safe to say that 2020 is an unprecedented year. Still, despite the challenges we’ve been dealt, one thing we’ve been able to count on is family. As you and your co-parent make plans for the approaching holiday season, know that the best gifts you can give to your children are the health and safety of everyone in your family along with memories that will last a lifetime.
How you split the holidays is entirely up to you and your ex if you can agree on a plan. Just make sure to put the needs of your children first.
Bringing a New Plan to the Courts
If you are co-parenting this holiday season, create a written, specific holiday visitation schedule and have it filed with the courts. Yes, it’s an extra step but It’s all too common for parents to argue about visitation plans during the holidays if there isn’t a court order in place.
Although the absence of your children during the holidays can be challenging, support your ex’s time with the children, regardless of your feelings.
