Summertime is all about fun in the sun, but if you have child custody arrangements to consider, it's best you sort those out prior to vacation time. While you and your co-parent may have your custody arrangement nailed down while your kids are in school, summer vacation can throw all of your plans off-kilter. With summer just around the corner, consider these key issues with child custody in the summer to prepare yourself and your family for new arrangements.
When a couple with children divorces, it is best for the children if both parents are actively involved in their lives, which a custody order can provide. Unfortunately for the non-custodial parent, events occur that cause separation between themselves and their children. Although the non-custodial parent tries to be there for his or her children, situations, such as a new job or marriage to a new spouse, occur and they cannot physically be in the same town or even state as his or her children.
