If you are a co-parent in Colorado, it is essential to know the potential for increased conflict during the holiday season. Holidays are a time for families to come together, and this can be difficult for estranged co-parents or who have a strained relationship. Parents may feel pressure to spend the holidays with their children, leading to disagreements about dividing holiday time. There is also the case of families experiencing loss and loneliness from spending their first holiday season away from one another. In any case, you can benefit from reviewing your child custody agreement and if it still works for your family.
For example, if you have moved to a new city or state, or if your work schedule has changed significantly, you may need to modify your custody agreement to reflect new changes.
For example, if your child is older now and wants to spend more time with you, or if your child has special needs that require special accommodations during the holidays, you may need to modify your child custody agreement.
For example, if your ex-partner is refusing to let you see your child during the holidays, or if they are making it difficult for you to exercise your parenting rights, you may need to modify your child custody agreement to enforce your rights.
For example, if you currently have sole custody of your child during the holidays, and you want to create a new schedule that gives your ex-partner more time with your child, you may need to modify your child custody agreement.
