It should be noted that the best way to arrange a visitation schedule is
for the two parents to sit down calmly with each other - and with the
best interests of the child in mind - work out a schedule that is fair
and equitable. Present it to the judge, who will usually approve it and
it will become legally binding. If one can do so, in this manner, the
schedule should represent the best scenario possible. After all, no judge
can know and understand your family's needs more than you.
The process of going through a divorce can be particularly difficult, especially
given the fact that no one is perfect and everyone is prone to making
mistakes. And even well-meaning parents who are getting along fine through
the dissolution phase of their marriage can make mistakes in setting out
"the rules" of visitation-which in turn can start to create
a friction. First and foremost, it should be written and agreed upon -
in detail - as much as possible. Leaving parts of the agreement "open
"or "general," are usually the beginnings of misunderstandings
Holidays and Visitation
Another area, where otherwise amicable parents can find visitations schedules
increasingly difficult, is holidays. The beginning and the end of the
holiday needs to be defined in your agreement. This is an area that can
create a great deal of grief and conflict if not understood and laid out
properly in the language of the visitation.
Another aspect of holiday visitation encompasses transportation. Especially
for those parents who live States apart. The agreement must address air
travel and other transportation. Who is responsible for the airfare? Who
may pick the children up, who may drop them off? The more detailed and
clear the better for all concerned.
