What to do after a holiday parenting time dispute

We hope our readers had a great Thanksgiving. The one good thing about having a holiday on Thursday is that the weekend is upon us; which means that there are three more days to relax and spend time with family. However, there are some of our readers who had the misfortune of not being able to spend Thanksgiving Day with their kids.

Indeed, this scenario is not ideal. But if this describes your reality, take solace in knowing that there will be time to make memories with the kids

As we alluded to earlier, the weekend is upon us, which means that there are additional days to spend with family. Thanksgiving weekend, like the holiday season, is a collection of days that define a time where families get together. Also, family court judges expect parents to share the holidays; which means that a parent who usurps the entire weekend (especially without notice to the other party) may have to answer to the court.

But there are different solutions. For those parents who did not see their kids and do not have court ordered parenting time, the solution is pretty obvious. You must obtain an order so that your parenting time will be detailed and enforceable.  For those parents with orders where a parent disobeyed, you may need assistance from law enforcement in order to make sure you have your time. After all the police are charged with enforcing court orders, so while it is an extreme measure, the police can be a helpful ally in defending parenting time.
