ATLANTA, Dec. 9, 2015 — Family law attorney Jon Hedgepeth with Hedgepeth, Heredia & Rieder blogs this week on child custody over the holidays. Because the December break encompasses multiple holidays, Hedgepeth says it can be especially problematic.

In the post, he offers advice on creating custody-sharing agreements that are fair to all. He notes, “There are practical ways to look at splitting up the long holiday period in a manner that is not only more equitable but more in keeping with the spirit of the season. There’s no single 'right' approach to handling holiday custody, but it really helps if the parents can agree on a united plan of action.”
