Changing child custody agreement for the holidays

With Thanksgiving and other holidays quickly approaching, divorced parents in Pennsylvania need to start thinking about parenting time. There is a good chance that both parents will want to have the kids for every holiday, but this does not always work. Many parents modify their current parenting plan to accommodate the holidays, and this can take some negotiating on everyone's part.

Live About discusses the fact that making plans for the holidays will usually require some sacrifices by both parents. Discussions should begin early on, and both parents should consider what they really want before talking to the ex. Prepare to compromise and consider alternative ways to celebrate holidays. This may look like one parent gets the kids on Christmas Eve and the other Christmas Day, or it may be that the kids get to celebrate the holidays the week before or after in addition to the actual date. Exes who are able to get along may even choose to include each other in certain situations.

Avoid these mistakes as an executor

Executors generally mean well when it comes to managing estates in Pennsylvania. Even so, they are not immune to making costly mistakes that could reduce the value of the estate or make them financially liable for certain actions taken. This is why it is so important to let executors know beforehand of their duty and to pick someone who has a sound understanding of what to do.

MarketWatch identifies paying bills way too early as one of the big mistakes that executors make. It may seem like a financially responsible thing to do to pay bills on time, but it may not be the legally responsible action. It may constitute a breach of fiduciary duty to pay these debts ahead of others. If the estate then does not have enough money left over to pay debts that rank ahead of this, such as federal taxes, the executor may become personally liable to pay this.
