GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOTV) — A big do for parents when taking kids on vacation: plan ahead to keep your trip plans running smoothly! Don’t make firm plans without checking with your ex or being sure those dates are firmly within your parenting time.
If your court order requires permission from your ex to travel out of state or out of the country, do so well in advance and get it in writing. Sharing your itinerary with your ex is a good idea and don’t forget to respect their vacation time with the kids as well. Use the time they are gone as a little ‘me’ time!
