Hermiston, OR asked in Family Law and Child Custody for Oregon

Q: Vacation pulled by ex-spouse

My ex-husband agreed to vacation time that would result in him not seeing his kids on his weekend. I have his agreement in writing. Now two days before the vacation he is now refusing me to take them. If I take my children on vacation after his refusal will I be in contempt of our court ordered agreement?

A: If you have a parenting plan in place, and he agreed in writing to allow you to deviate from the agreement and take your children on vacation, you should not be held in contempt of your court ordered agreement. It is possible he will file contempt charges, but your defense is the writing that he signed. If you have additional questions, I am available.
