The summer months are an excellent opportunity for you to make memories with your children. If this is the first summer since your divorce, you will likely find that the school break is much different from previous years. While you are making plans for these months, you have some special considerations to think about. We know this is a huge undertaking, but it will be well worth the effort.
One thing for which you should be prepared is needing to either take off work or find child care for the times when your children are with you. Some parents who have recently divorced are able to finagle their work schedule so they can have this extra time with the children, but don’t feel bad if you can’t do this.
During the summer months, you can build amazing memories with your children. These don’t have to be made only during a vacation away from home. Doing things around the Fort Lauderdale area can be a lot of fun. Even staying at home and having weekly movie nights can lead to good memories.
We know that you might want to take a vacation with your children. If this is the case, you need to review the child custody agreement to determine if there are any conditions that could prevent this. Some geographical limitations might be present or you might have to notify the other parent of your travel plans.
Remember that your children’s best interests have to be at the heart of the decisions you make. If you don’t feel those are being met, you might have legal options to help you protect them. We can help you to find out what options and possible solutions you might have.
