Is your summer parenting schedule fair?

| Jun 15, 2016 | Child Custody |

While you and your child’s other parent are debating the details of your parenting plan during your divorce in Georgia, the natural structure of the school year naturally defines much of the schedule. However, the weeks of summer vacation provide more flexibility, and CustodyXChange.com provides suggestions for ways that you and your child’s other parent may divide this time in the parenting plan wisely.

The non-custodial parent often sees less of the child during the year, so you and your former spouse may want to allot more of the free time in the summer to that parent as a way of balancing the rest of the schedule. For example, if your child will be living with you throughout the school year, and visiting the other parent on alternating weekends, it may work well to have the child spend more of the summer weeks there and visit you on the alternating weekends.

You may want to simply divide the time in half, which may be done in a variety of ways, such as alternating weeks or taking two weeks at a time. Some guidelines recommend that the child spends July with one parent, and then August with the other.  

There will always be factors that are unique to your situation. However, one of the main things to keep in mind is how the parenting plan will affect your child’s ability to maintain a healthy relationship with both you and the other parent.
