Is Splitting Holidays Required for Custody Agreements

On behalf of The Law Office of Wickersham and Bowers posted in Family Law on Sunday November 1, 2020.

Holidays are meant to be a time of celebration and spending time with our loved ones.  Parents dealing with divorce often face challenges when it comes to enjoying these special times together with their children.  Knowing your legal rights in Florida as a parent of a minor can give you peace of mind when it comes to splitting holidays for custody agreements. At the Law Office of Wickersham & Bowers in Daytona Beach, we have you and your child’s best interest at heart. 

Negotiating a Parenting Plan for Holiday Custody Agreements

Our Florida law office is devoted to helping you and your family experience the comfort and joys the holiday season can bring. That is why we are here to provide you with the best counsel when it comes to determining holiday custody agreements. 

The first step to stress-free holiday custody terms is to establish a parenting plan.  Florida law requires a parenting plan that distributes equal custody time-sharing. This means each parent receives a 50-50 share of time spent with the child (or children) in a joint custody situation. Therefore, equally splitting holidays is required for custody agreements.  

It is important to establish a clear parenting plan regarding holiday custody to avoid misunderstandings.  The Florida Supreme Court provides a checklist that includes traditional holidays as well as other special days off during the school year.  Establishing this parenting plan is crucial to identifying what is considered a holiday and which parent should receive the child or children in any particular occasion. 

Once finalized, this time-share plan will eliminate doubt and confusion regarding your custody agreement.  With our legal counsel, we can help you negotiate clear terms as to defining fair holiday custody with satisfaction and equanimity.
