 Illinois divorce lawyerSummer is known as a time for fun and relaxation. However, for families with separated or divorced parents, summer vacation can be complicated. It can be a challenge to figure out daycare or camp arrangements, summer vacations, and custody plans. Regardless of the type of relationship you have with your co-parent, these summer co-parenting tips are sure to make your summer as well as your child’s summer happy and free of stress.

1. Consider Summer Schedules

Your schedule, as well as your child’s schedule, may change during the summer months. While your child may be off from school, you may not work because of the type of career you have. It is crucial to take a look at your situation as well as your child’s and speak to your co-parent about any changes that may need to be made to your custody plan.

You should also ask your child how they would like to spend their summer break. If they hope to play sports or attend summer camp, you should make sure that your custody plan accommodates these summer activities.

2. Do Not Forget About Vacations

If you would like to take your child on a summer vacation, try to book it well in advance. This way, your co-parent can plan ahead and make note of how the vacation will work with their schedule. You should also let your co-parent know how they can contact your child while they are away with you.

In addition, if you plan on taking a vacation without your child, find out whether your co-parent, a grandparent, or another trustworthy family member or friend can care for your child while you are out of town.

3. Keep Your Children in the Loop

Make sure your child has a say in how they spend their summer. If they are young, you should provide them with options and if they are older, it is a good idea to simply listen to them and find out what they would like to do. By working with your child to design a summer that they are excited about, you, your co-parent, and your child will all have a successful summer.
