Know how you will handle child care arrangements on school breaks

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.

The parenting plan schedule you have is your first stop when you are trying to make these plans. If you and your ex live close to each other, you need to decide whether you are going to use the same child care provider. While using the same provider is easier on the child since they don't have to adjust to new people or places, it can be a challenge for you and your ex.

You need to decide how the payments to the provider will work. One option that you have is for each parent to pay for the days that they have the children. This might involve one parent paying the provider and the other parent reimbursing them for the payment.

We know that this is a challenge you might not have been prepared to handle, but getting things together now for this can take some stress out of the arrangement. You might need to have the terms for these situations included in the child custody agreement. You and your ex can refer to this information if there is ever a question about what needs to happen.
