When kids are out of school during the summer, Mississippi parents are often left wondering how they will manage their kids’ schedule during the summer months. This can be even more complicated for parents who don’t live together, and it is important to address summer visitation during custody negotiations. Parents would be wise to make plans regarding the care of their kids during school holidays while they are negotiating the terms of their divorce.
Where will the children go?
Parents will need to consider certain factors when determining how parenting time during the summer will work. First, they must decide how their work schedules will work in conjunction with what the kids need. They also need to consider important things that could affect the children as well, including summer camps, visitation with extended family members and more.
Because of the nature of many summer activities, Mississippi parents will need to be flexible. It is possible they may need to change visitation schedules last minute or be prepared to adjust to accommodate different things that may arise. Solid communication and patience can help two divorced parents navigate the challenges that come with summer custody matters.
A strong foundation
A strong child custody agreement is the foundation for a sustainable and peaceful parenting arrangement. During the summer, things may be different from the normal routine, but parents can work together to create a plan that will provide stability and security for the kids. Before making any important custody-related decisions, parents may benefit from speaking with an experienced family law attorney.
