Know the terms of your parenting plan to remain compliant

Knowing the contents of your child custody order can save you a lot of time down the road. There are different things that you need to check out in the agreement. One of these is the schedule that the children will follow. Normally, there is a general schedule that you will follow most of the year. There is also other information about holidays and special days. All of these should be followed exactly as they are written.

There are some orders that include special criteria for vacations. This can be complex because these trips sometimes take precedence over the normal schedule so you will have to ensure that you take this into consideration. Hopefully, you will schedule vacations when your children are supposed to be with you, and maybe your ex will do the same. If not, there should be something in the parenting plan that addresses that need for the child to have time with both parents.

We know there are some situations that might call for a deviation from the schedule. In these cases, you and your ex should try to work together to make the best decisions for the children. This isn't always going to be easy, but you have to put the kids first.

Sometimes, you might need to review the order to determine whether it still meets your child's needs now. As your child grows up and matures, the schedule and other aspects of the agreement might need to change. A child custody modification may be in order if this is the case. We can work with you to get this process going.
