Seeking Mediation During the Holidays

If you and your ex-spouse are having a difficult time determining when each parent gets to keep the children, it may be best to sit down with a skilled Denver mediator and go over a very detailed vacation schedule. A mediator and legal expert can meet with your and your ex and provide paperwork with all the possible holidays that your child may get off of school. These holidays range from Martin Lither King Day to Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. A mediator can also determine who has the children for Labor Day, who has them for Independence Day, and who was them for Veteran's Day.

In most cases, a father will have the children on Father's Day, and a Mother will have the children on Mother's Day. In some situations, a mediator may also divide who gets the children for the first night of Passover and the second night of Passover. In addition to all of these smaller holidays, an attorney or mediator can help you to decide how to work through the bigger holidays. You may need to determine who will have the children on Thanksgiving Day, and how long that parent will have the children for. You may also want to determine who will have the children for the duration of the Thanksgiving vacation, or who will have the children for Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.

One helpful tip when deciding these important visitation schedules is to remember that you shouldn't focus on the day itself. As a parent, you can make traditions and memories with your children on any day of the year. This means that if you do not have the children on Christmas day, this should not bar you from celebrating the holiday on another day during the year.
