Easter Custody and Visitation for Children

Easter is less than a week away. This holiday of Easter egg hunts, baskets, and celebration is a very special time for children and adults alike. If you are divorced and are in a shared custody agreement or a partial custody agreement, then you will want to make sure you are certain who has the children on Easter.

Normally, spouses decide holiday custody arrangements during their divorce settlement. You should have a carefully planned schedule of who has the children on particular holidays. If you don't have that schedule, or think you may have forgotten to schedule who has the children for Easter, you have several options.

You can just let the children go with the parent who would typically have them over that weekend. Also, you may be able to divide the day in half, allowing your ex to have the children for part of the day and then taking them to spend time with you for the other half of the day. If you only have visitation rights, then you may want to petition for visitation on this special holiday. Contact a San Fernando divorce attorney at Cutter & Lax today if you want more information.
