Sevierville, TN asked in Family Law and Child Custody for Tennessee

Q: Thanksgiving is divided by agreement but papers dont say who gets them first. How do we know?

Papers dont state mom or dad or odd or even so how do we know who get them wed thru Thursday and Thursday thru Friday and no it cant be just talked out? Is there a statue about this like there is in some states?

A: There Is no Tennessee Statute, If the papers are truly ambiguous, I suggest that whoever is named primary residential parent should pick the day they want, and the other parent gets what's left. Or maybe just flip a coin to decide who gets to pick.
