The holidays are known for families spending lots of quality time together. For some, this can be an exciting time of year. However, others may view the holidays as a source of stress. The holidays can be complicated for divorced parents who share custody. To learn more about the most common family law issues that may arise during the holiday season, continue reading and speak with our Union County child custody attorneys.

Sharing Custody

Sharing custody with a former spouse can be difficult around the holidays because parents will want to spend this time with their children as much as they can. Luckily, there are many solutions to those family law issues. The trick is finding the right solution that works best for you and your family. One of the most popular solutions for sharing custody over the holidays is to dedicate alternating years for both spouses. To learn the other options that you may wish to explore, contact our firm to discuss.

Changing Custody

Parents who share custody may realize that they have a set custody arrangement that no longer works for them, especially around the holidays. In this case, parents may seek to change the agreement around this busy time. This might occur throughout the holiday season as both parties struggle to spend time with their kids. Changing a custody agreement is difficult when done last minute, especially before an important event. With the right attorney in your corner, our legal team will help you to explore your options to come to a resolution that works best for you and your child.

Visitation Rights

Other family members such as grandparents may wonder about visitation rights around the holidays. Visitation rights will depend on the custody agreement that the parents have put into place. For the most part, this topic is up to the discretion of the parents. If you are a family member who is curious about your visitation rights around the holidays, it is important that you reach out to an experienced family law attorney who can provide you with more information regarding this process.
