Q: My custody order States that my sons father has visitation from 2 PM Christmas day until 6 PM Jan.1
The father has visitation every other week from 6PM Sunday until Wednesday at 6pm. It just so happens that his regular weekend starts the 23rd of December. Will I be breaking the custody order not allowing him to get my son until Christmas Day at 2pm?
A: It depends on what the Order states with regard to your holiday visitation time. Also, does it state that the holiday visitation supersedes the regular visitation. More information regarding what the order says is needed to be able to answer this question.
From what you provided, it appears the father starts his regular weekend visitation at 6 p.m. on Sunday. Normally, that would end on Wednesday.
However, during his weekend visitation, the Christmas visitation starts at 2 p.m. on Tuesday (Christmas) and continues to Jan. 1.
So, the father would have Dec. 23 to Jan. 1.
