The holidays are a difficult time to manage required visitation schedules in divorces. Most standard visitation schedules consider the holidays, but even having a standard can create turmoil. In Madison County, non-custodial parents are given lengthy periods of time during the holidays. This time with the non-custodial parent is important, but it can create a hardship for the other parent. Some do not realize that they are not bound by the rigid visitation schedule if they can agree to adjust for the holidays. Perhaps break up the lengthy periods with a break over at mom or dad’s house for a night or two. Think of it as an opportunity to get that last-minute shopping done. Treating someone with some compassion is an early Christmas gift you can give to them and to yourself as well.
