Tips to prevent a child custody dispute during spring break

Spring break is one of the better times of the year to take a trip with your children. However, if you’re divorced, this can bring forth a variety of questions and challenges.

Here are some tips for preventing a child custody dispute during spring break:

  • Turn to your parenting agreement: Your parenting agreement should outline where your children spend holidays and vacations, including spring break. This alone will give you a clear idea of what you can and can’t do.
  • Makes your plans as soon as possible: The sooner you get your plans in place the sooner you can discuss it with your ex-spouse. Also, once you agree on a plan, stick with it.
  • Put it in writing: It doesn’t sound like a big deal, but having your vacation plans in writing can help prevent an argument in the future. For example, as your trip closes in, send regular updates to your ex to remind them of the details. These written reminders help to keep everyone on the same page. They can also come in handy should you face some type of legal trouble in the future.

Even if you do your best to follow these tips, your ex may be in the mood to make things difficult on you. In this case, learn more about your legal rights and the steps you can take to enjoy spring break with your children.

Should your ex continue to push back, perhaps by violating the parenting agreement, it may be time to take legal action to protect your relationship with your children.
