How do divorcing parents handle the issue of Christmas and other holiday periods in custody disputes? What kind of schedules do North Carolina Divorce Courts order in Child Custody Cases? In a perfect world, every child would have the benefit of waking up to two loving parents every Christmas morning. The sad reality is that many parents do not stay together and in those cases it is crucial to establish holiday custody schedules that allow the children to experience the joy of the holidays with each parent. As a Raleigh Divorce Lawyerfor over fourteen years, I have seen all kinds of holiday custody schedules and before you decide what kind of schedule works for you, there are several factors you should consider.
Two Ways to View Holidays. For school aged children, there are two ways to view holiday custody schedules. The first is to attempt to divide the actual holiday period or day. For example, Christmas is typically recognized as Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and sometimes the day after Christmas. The second way to view holiday schedules is to divide the entire period the children are out of school. Most North Carolina school systems release for Christmas several days before the actual holiday and resume after New Years Day. The same principal is true of Thanksgiving, Easter, and some other holidays. If you address the holiday only, you are dividing only a day or two, while addressing the holiday as a break from school and dividing that time period you will be dividing more time. Either method is acceptable if it works for the children and the parents.
