On Behalf of | Oct 7, 2022 | Child Custody

Ensuring a Jolly Season for Everyone

The holidays are for spending time with family, seeing friends, and having fun. But what happens when you have to deal with holiday custody and visitation issues? If you’re facing this situation, don’t worry – you’re not alone. In this blog, we’ll discuss how to handle holiday custody and visitation issues in California. We’ll provide some tips and advice that will help make the holiday season a little bit easier for everyone involved.

Plan Ahead

The holidays can be a stressful time for families who are dealing with custody and visitation issues. If you are going through a divorce or separation, it is important to plan ahead and make sure that you are on the same page as your ex-partner when it comes to holiday visitation.

There are several things to keep in mind regarding holiday custody and visitation in California:

Splitting Time

First, the court will typically give each parent an equal amount of time with the child during the holidays. This means that if one parent gets Christmas Eve, the other parent will get Christmas Day.

Letting the Court Decide

Second, if the parents cannot agree on a holiday schedule, the court will usually default to the schedule that is in the best interest of the child. This means that the court will take into consideration things like which parent the child lives with most of the time, which parent the child is closest to, and which parent can provide the best holiday experience for the child.

Mediating the Outcome

Third, if you are having difficulty reaching an agreement with your ex-partner about holiday visitation, seek help from a mediator or attorney. They can help you come up with a plan that is fair and in the best interests of your child.

Put Your Children First

Remember, it is important to put your child’s needs first during this time of year. If you are able to reach an agreement with your ex-partner, it will make the holiday season much more enjoyable for everyone involved.
