Don't forget these important holiday planning tips

With the holidays right around the corner, now is the time to think about some child custody issues that might come up during this busy season. It is easy to get focused on the hoopla that comes with big gatherings, but there are some finer points to consider.

Holiday activities might require changes in parenting time plans

The winter holiday season isn't that far off. Even though you might not want to think about right now, you may need to if there are issues about the holiday parenting schedule that need to be hashed out before Thanksgiving break.

Help your kids feel at home in your house

One of the biggest adjustments that children have to make during a divorce is learning how to live in two homes.

Finding a way to help them can be challenging but rewarding.

Parenting plans must consider children's needs and schedules

The parenting plan that you set for your children as you work out child custody during your divorce can be as detailed as you feel it needs to be. At a minimum, it needs to cover the schedule that you will use to know which parent has the children when. It should also include information about who is going to make decisions in specific areas for the children.

Back to school might mean child custody changes are necessary

There are many things that parents have to deal with when back-to-school season starts. Buying school supplies, figuring out schedules and handling the kids' anxiety jitters are some of these. When you and your child's other parent are divorced, there can be additional complexities added to an already stressful situation.

It is imperative that you take the time to focus on getting a child custody order that enables you to do this in a meaningful way. We are here to help you make this happen.

Help your teen understand the divorce and how to cope

Divorcing when you have a child is a challenge, but it can be a very trying time when you are dealing with a teenager. A teen has become accustomed to the way of life that involves you and your ex still together. They might push against the divorce to the point that they make both parents miserable. It is up to you to help the child work through the problems they are experiencing. You and your ex might have to work together to ensure that the child's best interests are a priority.

Child custody for teenagers should be flexible

Child custody cases have to take the child's age and maturity level into account. When you are dealing with a teenager, you likely need to have a more flexible agreement. Many teens are socially active, have school events and may have extracurricular activities. These don't always work with a rigid schedule.
