Christmas and the school holidays raise a lot of unique issues and challenges for separated families.

The message is, if you are concerned about what the holiday arrangements will be? or, if they will happen? You need to get Specialist Family Law advice – now!
My Child’s Wishes
What arrangements your child would like to see happen is one of the factors that is considered when determining arrangements. To better understand this, read – “What about children’s wishes”.
Once arrangements are agreed upon, it is usually preferable to document them in a Parenting Plan or a Consent Order, read “Parenting Plan v Consent Order”.
Changing a Court Order
Court orders are designed to be clear and enforceable and as they are usually achieved after extensive negotiations, or after the preparation of a Family Report or after a contested court hearing, they are not easily changed. For more information read – “Changing a Parenting Court Order”.
