The time has come when you and your current or former significant other need to discuss summer camp for your children. This time can be stressful because of the options, or lack thereof depending upon your level of procrastination, and the logistics/costs involved.
This process is all the more stressful if you have a parenting plan or parenting schedule that you don't fully understand or your former significant other refuses to follow.
In Florida if you have 'shared parental responsibility' over your children, you are supposed to confer before making any decisions for your children. This includes summer camp. If you cannot reach an agreement, you are technically required to have a neutral third party resolve the dispute. Almost always, this is the Judge assigned to your case.
This is clearly not a cost effective or timely way of managing disputes. Mediation is a helpful tool in trying to resolve these types of disputes but it too can be costly.
Often times all you need is an advocate to explain the situation to your former significant to clearly outline the realities of the costs involved with returning to court including, the apportionment of attorney's fees. What seems like an immovable object can often be moved with the appropriate motivation.
Sadly, spouses who are currently married have difficulty communicating. Communication between ex-'s is typically worse.
