A: If it is not outlined in the parenting plan in the Decree or Child Custody Order, the parents must either come to an agreement, go to mediation, or take the matter in front of a judge. I suggest the two of you attempt to resolve the matter. You could suggest that the other party choose which weeks they will get this year, you get to choose the weeks in 2023, and then you continue to alternate.

Co-parenting can be challenging. I hope you are able to come to an agreement without having to go back to court.
