Keep a calendar or diary of your holiday parenting/visitation time

-

This time of the year New Jersey divorced couples often end up back in court on a post judgment motion for holiday visitation. People especially like to have their child wake up in their home on Christmas morning. Even though most property settlement agreements lay out holiday visitation schedules, parties maintain there was a deviation from that in the previous year to accommodate the other party. The best way to prevent this is to keep a calendar or diary of some sort of previous years' visitation schedule. Also keep track of those communications surrounding the visitation arrangements.
