With summer just around the corner, parents in Indiana and elsewhere are making vacation plans for the summer. Typically, parents must navigate taking time off, summer camps, and affordable times to travel; however, for divorcing and divorced parents, it often means establishing custody orders and holiday schedules that work for everyone involved.
Summer and parenting time
As children grow, their hobbies, activities and interests change. As such, it may be necessary to revisit custody orders, especially when it comes to summer breaks. While an order may designate certain days or allotted times for vacation, there might be various new factors that come into play.
A child may have summer camp, sports practice and plans with friends. It can become challenging to navigate this, as parents do not want to disturb the child’s schedule. However, a parent still wants to ensure they not only get their time with their child, but they also want to guarantee that their vacation plans can still occur.
