As we discussed last week, the summer months are here and that means that some divorced parents will now have to decide how to handle child custody and visitation while the children are out of school. That can pose some unique challenges for some parents. It is still important for the child’s parents to work together to determine how to handle the months out of school in a way that puts the child’s interests first.

The ultimate goal of a child custody and visitation schedule is to allow the parents to enjoy a relationship with the child. For some parents, however, the need to work means that special arrangements must be made. This might mean that the child spends time with a grandparent or that other childcare arrangements are made.

In some cases, the summer months mean a need for a modified agreement. Some parents might be able to come up with an agreement on their own, but others might need the court’s help. In either case, we can help you to ensure that your legal rights as your child’s parent are honored. We can help you ensure that you have what you need to enforce child custody and visitation orders.

Child custody matters are very sensitive matters that no parent really looks forward to hashing out with strangers. If the time comes for you to do that, you should make sure that you work with someone who stands firm by your side throughout the process. We can help you from the beginning of the case until the end.
