My question is, how does this arrangement work over the Christmas holiday period when set in a court order (pending). I would have no desire to change the arrangement but it would mean eventually my child will stay with me over the Christmas period and that wouldn’t go down well with the ex. Is it just tough? communications broke down some time ago.
Its nice you are actually considering the other parent, I would recommend using the season, to try and build a little bridge, and wouldn’t the chrisms season be a perfect time.
Its so hard when communication break down, because uhntimatlly the children do suffer. Propose alternative christmases.
But also you have to look at if the children may be with you this year but don’t mean it will be the same the next few Christmas , as it fulls on different days every year, unless you always to have your children on the 25th…..
Its never easy because one will seem to have the control on setting, I do believe court orders should be for a minimum, never a maximum, as it makes them harder in the future and have no flexibility.
Not sure if I have helped, but hopefully a little food for thought.
Thanks Carp, I’m not bothered about what days over Christmas.. to be honest I’d prefer access after the initial fuss. It just needs to be put into the final outcome. Just not sure what exactly to request?
