As many already know, the end of the year is busy with holidays such as
Thanksgiving and Christmas. However, many individuals forget that Halloween
is actually the unofficial start of the holiday season. Because Halloween
is a holiday that is not often addressed in
divorce agreements, divorced couples who share
custody of their children must work together in order to decide who will care
for and send time with their children on this holiday.
Divorced couples should reach agreements prior to Halloween by considering
the following factors:
- Children should be able to trick-or-treat with familiar faces and neighbors
- Children should be comfortable walking around a familiar neighborhood
- Children should be accompanied by a responsible parent
- Children should be accompanied by a parent who is willing to join in on
the fun, safe, holiday activities
Additionally, parents who share children should discuss the following matters,
prior to the holiday, to avoid unnecessary and uncomfortable conflicts:
- Curfews for children
- Costume selections for children
- Activities planned for the evening
- Driving arrangements made with other adults or parents (if any)
