Tips for handling summer vacations when you share custody

If you live in Denver and share custody of your children, you know firsthand what it is like to work out a parenting schedule that affords both you and your ex quality time with the children. This can sometimes be stressful as everyone’s calendars do no always align. Even divorced parents like to take vacations with their children and most people choose do this in the summer so as not to interfere with school. However, it can be difficult to plan a trip when you only have partial custody. At Frost & Beck, P.C., we understand how important your time with your children is when you are not in your care full-time.

Split custody can benefit parents as well as children

Anyone who is a parent in Denver knows how much time and effort go into raising children. When two parents split and share custody, it can be a huge adjustment for everyone involved. Many parents fear that having less time with their children will cause their relationship to suffer. However, some people have found that a shared custody arrangement can actually help them improve their parenting.

When a couple divorces in Colorado, it can be extremely difficult for everyone involved. However, a divorce can especially take a toll when there are children involved.
