The start of a new school year is a good time to re-think your routines and make adjustments. If you have a good relationship with your child's parent you may be able to work out changes to your visitation/access schedule as well. It is very common for parents to make modifcations to the schedule, as kids needs change as they get older. Keep in mind your court order will dictate the enforceable schedule. However, a regular and significant deviation from your court order may give rise to a modification of the order and thus make the "informal" schedule your new court order. It is always best to keep track of the actual access schedule, including minor changes. It doesn't have to be a complicated system, a small notebook or dollar-store calendar will do.
