Vacation plans for the summer should be made now

Now that the warmer weather is here, you might be ready to start to make plans for the summer months. If you aren't together with your child's other parent, you need to think carefully about what plans you make for vacations and trips. You might have specific steps to take if you want to leave the state of New Jersey or even the immediate area. These steps should ideally be outlined in the child custody order.

We know that you might not want to check in with your ex about your plans. Unfortunately, if you are traveling with the children that you share, you may very well have to do this. In fact, your child custody order might require it. Even if it doesn't, discussing the plans is a good idea since you can make sure that there aren't any conflicts with dates or anything else.

One consideration that you have is the scheduling of your trip. Vacations sometimes take precedence over the normal parenting time schedule. Still, you shouldn't try to schedule things like flights too close to when you pick up the children from your ex. Making sure that you leave enough time to get to the airport can mean you don't have to deal with as much stress.

You also need to ensure that you provide ways for the kids to communicate with the other parent during the vacation. They will likely want to share their memories of the trip and might just feel better knowing they can call or video chat. Having these plans in place early can help everyone feel more relaxed and comfortable with the vacation plans.
