When your children move from your home to your ex's or back again, things can be stressful. Every custody exchange can be a big adjustment for them, and they are counting on you to help them through it.
Child custody can be a challenge during the school holidays. You have to figure out when you are going to have the children so you know when you'll need to plan for child care. While many people automatically think of the long breaks, such as summer and winter holiday breaks, the short ones and even half days are just as challenging. We know that you might not feel prepared, but it is an important consideration, especially if your children are younger.
Divorce and child custody agreements are difficult to muddle through. When it comes to deciding issues such as custody, visitation, co-parenting plans and the like, even the most amicable parties can become emotional. An issue that may plague custody agreements is relocation out of the state by the parent with primary custody. In those instances, Massachusetts is not the first home of the person seeking to move. Relocating would allow the person to perhaps gain better access to jobs or personal support networks, such as extended family and friends.
