It’s that time of year when everyone wants to be with their loved ones. Unfortunately, many families have a hard time deciding which parent gets what holiday with their children. Look below for a few tips to help you during this time.
Make a Schedule and Follow it
When you make a holiday schedule for the children, it allows for the holidays to be more enjoyable because everyone has agreed to it. When you are determining the schedule, be sure that everyone involved gets a say.
Equal Time Shared with Children
We recommend trying to spend the same amount of time with the children for each holiday. It can be difficult if parents live in different towns or states. One way to do this is to rotate which parent gets a specific holiday every year.
Don’t Wait Until Last Minute
When you are separating, you should decide in advance who is going to get which holidays with the kids. By doing it ahead of time, you can prepare, and you don’t have to worry about changing plans last minute.
Lastly, do not forget to cherish these special moments with your children because they grow up quickly. Connect with our attorneys by calling (813) 280-2911 when you need to discuss your separation agreement in Tampa.
