The summer is approaching and summer camps are starting to fill up. What are your plans for your children this summer ? This is often times a complicated and confusing question and can bring on negative feelings and thoughts of confusion. The parenting plan in your case should dictate what the time sharing schedule is for your children during the summer time. Parties often have problems with confirming plans and making schedules within the family. The last thing you want is to explode a family fight and create unnecessary litigation over summer time sharing schedules. In light of the Covid-19 Pandemic and increased availability of the covid vaccine, traveling now actually seems like a possibility for the summer 2021. I did not state travel would be easier or parents would be entitled to travel more with their children. But your parenting plan in each case must address the summer time sharing schedule. If you are one of the parents in Florida that has a vague parenting plan or summer time sharing defined “as the parties agree,” you may want to receive a legal consultation on what this language actually means and how it can be corrected to avoid ambiguity.

Summer time should be a fun, relaxing time of the year with as limited stress as possible. Please give Honickman Law a phone call to schedule a free 30 minute consultation if you have questions about your summer time sharing and how it impacts your parenting plan.
