My ex-husband and I are disagreeing about our upcoming holiday schedule. He wants to stick to the way it is in our divorce agreement, but our kids are older now and I think a change would be beneficial. Do I have time to get into court before Thanksgiving?
You probably do not have time to actually have a court date before Thanksgiving at this point, just because of the way the court’s dockets are being scheduled. However, that does not mean that you don’t have other options. You and your ex-husband can meet with a co-parenting counselor, or co-parenting coordinator and see if he or she can help you reach a resolution if the two of you cannot work it out on your own. Alternatively, you can seek mediation and an attorney can serve as a neutral third-party to help you work toward an agreeable modification of your underlying agreement. If you do go the mediation route, you can file a formal post-judgment Motion to Modify after you reach an agreement so that the holiday schedule for your parenting plan will be formally changed with the court afterward.
