Sharing custody of your children is especially challenging during school vacations. Here are some things you should know about how spring break affects your child custody arrangement. Can your ex take your kids on a spring break trip without telling you where they’re going? As long as your custody agreement does not specify that your former spouse cannot take the children to another state during school holidays, then your ex is usually allowed to travel with the children wherever he or she pleases. If you don’t feel comfortable with the situation and really want to know where they are going, remember that by law, such decisions must be made according to the children’s best interest. If you feel that your ex may be taking your children someplace dangerous, or if your children are emotionally unstable at this time and cannot travel far, let your lawyer know that this potential trip is coming up. There are ways to prevent these situations from happening, or to make your ex at least tell you his or her travel plans.
