Holidays can be a stressful time, adding child custody disputes on top of it will only make it worse. Even if there is a holiday parenting schedule in place there can still be miscommunications and arguments with where the children are going to spend the holidays. While some holiday schedules alternate holidays every year, others do not. Some other parenting schedules may not even address a holiday schedule.
Figuring out the parenting schedule for holidays should be done in advance to avoid extra stress and unnecessary misunderstandings. If no agreement can be made between the parties for the holiday schedule or no holiday schedule is in effect, experienced attorneys will help negotiate a settlement. Other options available to settle parenting time scheduling is utilizing a mediation program, a parenting time coordinator, or if all else fails, having your attorney file the appropriate motion. While there are many options to manage a holiday parenting time schedule consulting experienced and compassionate attorneys will help ease the stress off your shoulders. Contact Tomasella and Vacca, L.L.C for a consultation if you have any questions regarding holiday parenting schedule that requires the expertise of our Hackensack family law attorneys.
