Family law: Addressing summer breaks during negotiations

After making the decision to end a marriage, parents in California may consider it essential to provide the kids with a certain level of stability. During child custody negotiations, parents may seek to reach a schedule that accounts for the everyday needs of the kids. However, since their needs may be subject to change at times, a parent could find it helpful to speak with a family law attorney for advice on how to handle scenarios such as summer vacations.

While school is still in session, parents may have a scheduled routine that covers the daily requirements such as transportation and living arrangements. However, once summer comes around, children may have more free time on their hands, and their scheduling needs could change substantially. To reduce the likelihood of disagreements and conflict, parents may find it beneficial to address these scenarios while forming the initial parenting plan.

However, the kids might not want to spend the majority of this break at home, and they may wish to take part in activities such as summer sports or camps. One parent may also wish to travel with the kids over summer break. Since these scenarios could affect the normal visitation schedules, forming a strategy on how to address them in advance could be essential.

For school-age children, change may be a constant variable, and planning for every possible future scenario could be challenging at best. When facing the end of a marriage, a parent in California could find it beneficial to speak with a family law attorney for advice on factors to address during child custody negotiations. An attorney can provide a client with advice on every aspect of divorce and assist him or her in making informed decisions regarding the future of the kids.
