The school year went off without a hitch. You, your ex-spouse and the kids have seemingly adjusted to the custody schedule and fallen into a pattern. All appears to be calm despite two parents living separate lives while juggling their children’s custody schedules, school events, extracurricular activities and the like. But just when everything seems to be functioning as seamlessly as possible, the holidays are upon us and a new battle is brewing. Which parent will have the kids for the holidays?

The best way to avoid continuously battling over holidays is to address it when initially negotiating the custody schedule. A well-written custody agreement will not only detail when the children will be with each parent on a weekly basis, but will also go further to discuss custody of the children during school breaks, holidays and summer vacation. Some of the holidays addressed in a custody agreement include New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Easter, Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
