Can I Change My Parenting Time Agreement Before the Holidays in New York?

When the holiday season comes around each year, parents typically love to spend this time with their children. However, this may not be so simple for divorced parents. It is because of this that it can be a good time of year to revisit a parenting plan. In the event that you want to spend a holiday with your child that is not in your agreement, there are steps you can take. Continue reading below and contact an experienced New York family law attorney for assistance.

What do I do if a Holiday is Not in my Custody Agreement?

A good place to start when you want to spend a holiday with your child is to discuss the matter with their other parent. There are many instances in which the parent may be willing to swap days so you can have parenting time on the holiday you want. However, there are other cases in which they are not. In the event of this, it is still possible to petition the court for a post-judgment modification. This allows changes to be made to the agreement, such as to obtain parenting time on a holiday, as long as there are circumstances that call for it. 

What Else is Included in a Parenting Time Plan?

In addition to parenting time designations, there are other terms that can be included within a parenting plan when it is made. This can include the following:

  • A designation of physical and legal custody
  • A description of the parenting arrangement
  • A description of any changes that may occur in the arrangement as well as methods to modify the plan
  • A statement delegating any parental responsibilities and rights
  • Transportation concerns to bring the child to and from each parent
  • Any concerns regarding birthdays and holidays
  • Provisions regarding traveling out of the state or country
  • A description of access to and sharing school and medical records

What Our Clients Are Saying

I hired Susan to represent me in a divorce matter where I was fighting for custody and to limit my wife's equitable share of our assets. I won custody of our son, kept the marital residence, kept my professional practice, kept my building and paid less than half to my wife. This was after a long-term marriage. She could persuade the court that equitable is not equal and sometimes the man does deserve to win!

I first must say that I had been represented by two prior attorneys both of whom had simply taken my money and left me nothing to show for it in my custody case. They kept telling me what they were doing for me but I found out they were lying. Susan on the other hand had gotten me temporary custody and support for my children and myself within two months of hiring her. I cannot say enough about her.

‐ Craig

After talking to a few other attorneys, I hired Susan to represent me in my divorce and custody dispute. I was reluctant to go with her because she was the cheapest out of all the other attorneys I met with, but I'm so glad I did. I am 100% positive no one else would have done such a great job with my case as Susan and her staff. Her work is quality, her staff is reliable and her character is honorable. There...

‐ Linda

I had a very difficult case where I had already burned through two attorneys who were unable to get me custody of my children and complete my divorce. Susan was able to rapidly work out an agreement and not let it just malinger on like my previous experiences. She was also considerate of my financial situation unlike all of the other lawyers I had spoken to. I highly recommend her if you want complete and caring service with an in-depth knowledge of...
