Children are unfortunately used as pawns in divorce cases where the parents no longer like one another. If a clear visitation schedule is not established, one of the parents is more likely to abuse their rights, and the children are the ones that are harmed. Even in an amicable divorce, things can turn sour down the road. Uncertainty about specific details of child visitation can lead to uncomfortable and unnecessary disputes. It is in everyone’s best interest to establish a schedule to answer the following common questions:
- Who gets the children for Christmas?
- Who gets the children for Thanksgiving?
- Who gets the children for Spring Break?
- How long do I get the children this summer?
- Do I get weekend visitation this summer while the children are with their father?
- Do I get the children for my birthday?
- Do I get to see the children on their birthday?
- Do I see the children on mother’s day, when it is on the father’s visitation weekend?
- He’s working on his visitation weekend, does he get to decide who keeps the kids?
- What time do we exchange the children?
- Where do we meet to exchange the children?
- Who is allowed to be present when we exchange the children?
