While it may seem early to prepare for the holidays, they are fast approaching. Organizing a holiday schedule is difficult enough as is. However, after a divorce, there are more moving parts to keep in mind. For example, you have to be on the same page as your co-parent. While the stress and planning may seem overwhelming, Autumn Beck Blackledge PLLC has tips on preparing for the holiday season.
Depending on when you divorced, it might be helpful to review any important documents such as parenting plans and custody orders. Familiarizing yourself with the holiday schedule will allow you to make plans accordingly. Furthermore, you might notice that you would like to make changes to the schedule. Maybe the kids have special events this year, or grandparents are coming into town. Without reviewing documents in advance, you won’t be able to make the necessary adjustments.
After reviewing essential documents, reaching out to your co-parent to have a conversation can ensure that you are both on the same page. Make sure that your co-parent is aware of the schedule and knows when the kids are coming to them. Furthermore, if you would like to change the plan, you could bring it up during these conversations. Your fellow co-parent may also have adjustments that they would like to make. Being on the same page as your co-parent will ensure a smooth holiday experience for the whole family.
