We all need time away from the same old routine to get out and explore the world. Some families have regularly schedule vacation time they take every year, and such circumstances are easily included in a parenting plan. However, most parents wish for flexibility in exercising vacation time parenting plans, and a carefully crafted parenting time schedule will ensure you can plan and enjoy your vacation with ease.
A proper vacation time parenting plan should address vacation parenting time that is in the best interests of the child. Therefore, the child’s age, regular and holiday parenting time schedules should be taken into account. Young children should generally not be away from a primary parent for long periods of time, as frequent contact is important to young children.
The duration and frequency are two obvious matters to designate, but there are many other details to address as well. A well-crafted vacation time parenting plan will resolve disputes before they happen by designating how vacation time parenting plan should be selected and which parent has priority in any given year.
Some parents wish to travel internationally, and some parts of the world are dangerous for anyone to visit, especially for us Americans. If international travel with your children is expected, then parents should consider a prohibition on travel to locations listed on the US State Department’s website that lists alerts and travel warnings, see: https://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/alertswarnings.html.
Colorado offers a method for immediate relief when a child is at imminent risk of physical or emotional harm by a parent. The court can act immediately to suspend all unsupervised with the parent allegedly putting the child at risk and place them under emergency child custody with a legal guardian.
Formerly known as child visitation, Parenting Time outlines the schedule and conditions under which each parent may see their children
"I am very appreciative of Toms services. English is a second language to me, and this process seemed difficult because of that barrier. He was very patient and thorough making sure I understood everything before he proceeded. I will recommend him to everyone! He truly cares about you, as does his wonderful, helpful team"
Review from AVVO
"I had a very challenging case, one that could have had indefinite financial consequences. Tom Cossitt evaluated my case and identified several strategies for moving forward. I chose one and Tom developed and implemented that strategy with speed and with the utmost in professionalism. The documents he drafted on my behalf, based on extensive research and case law / precedent were thorough and comprehensive. When the Court ruled, it used the arguments as developed by Tom Cossitt verbatim in its decision, and the case was decided in my favor. Needless to say, I was pleased beyond words. Based on my experience and the outcome of my case, I would highly recommend Tom Cossitt to anyone requiring the services of a family law attorney."
Review from Google
"I met with as many as 10 different attorneys before coming across Thomas. After our initial consultation, I was very pleased with his knowledge and realistic expectations. During the really tough time, Thomas kept me calm and helped tremendously to get custody of my daughter. He kept me informed on what was going on and would ask for my input; if it was something that was unrealistic or could be done a different way, Thomas would tell me right away. During the hearings, he was amazing. He kept a professional attitude and was great at cross examinations. He took in all of the facts and evidence, and was able to present them efficiently and effectively. Ultimately helping me gain custody of my child."
