Dear Attorneys,

I am concerned about making travel arrangements during COVID-19. I really want to take my children away on vacation, but I am worried my ex will try to block my plans. Is there some way that I can prevent that?


Traveling Parent


Dear Traveling,

That depends on what underlying Court Orders/Agreements you already have in place. If you are each entitled to vacation time, but you do not need the other parent’s approval for such, than it may not be an issue. Conversely, if you have joint legal custody, the other parent may say that you are not acting in the child(ren)’s best interest, even if you do not need their explicit approval. You may want to start by having a conversation with the other parent if you have an amicable relationship. Ultimately, that will certainly make the least amount of “waves,” and would likely save you counsel fees.

However, not all co-parents have amicable relationships, and our first suggestion may not be plausible. If you fall into this category, you should consult with an attorney to see what your options are before booking anything non-refundable, if for no other reason than to save yourself some headaches down the road. With over 24 years of combined experience, Attorneys Kristen Wolf & Shari-Lynn Cuomo Shore are able to help you draft and file the appropriate motions, negotiate an agreement, and then finalize that agreement with the court.
