Thoughtful Holiday Parenting Time Scheduling is Key to Happy Holidays for Your Kids

Holidays are chaotic to begin with but adding in a parenting time schedule during divorce or custody proceedings increases the stress level to the breaking point.

Every parent's goal should be to maximize the children's holiday experiences through a quality holiday parenting time schedule. In the first episode of Foster Swift's "Family Law Minute" series, family law attorneys Ben Judd and Jackie Dupler provide their own experiences and discuss:

  • The process and approach of scheduling holiday parenting time and laying groundwork.
  • What courts in Michigan typically look at in scheduling parenting time.
  • Pitfalls and traps in scheduling holiday parenting time i.e., the difficulties of splitting any single holiday between both parents.
  • The importance of communication and consulting legal counsel in getting the ideal outcome for all parties.
