The holidays can be a magical time where families come together and enjoy the season in peace and happiness. We hope you all experience this magic this year!
Unfortunately, a stubborn or disruptive ex can put a damper on fun holiday visitation. Often parents are comfortable entering an agreement that Christmas and New Years visitation will be pursuant to the Utah Code Ann. 30-3-35.
However, once the holidays arrive parents can become extremely disruptive when they realize that this year the statute does not give them any part of the Christmas holiday. As a result, parents sometimes make the mistake of withholding the children or manipulating the children to get some holiday visitation on either Christmas or Christmas Eve.
These aggressive behaviors usually violate some part of the Divorce Decree or Custody Decree.
You do not have to put up with this type of inappropriate behavior. If your ex withheld the children or manipulated the children in a way to get visitation to which your ex was not entitled, you may have a claim.
If your ex violated your decree over the holidays, please call our office to set up a free consultation. We can discuss with you options for ensuring this time of behavior stops now!
