A: Your parenting plan should dictate what the summer parenting time is.

A: If your parenting plan provides that you have your daughter during the summer and your ex-wife is not permitting the visitation to occur, you can file a motion for contempt against her. However, if the parenting plan does not give you parenting time with the chid for the summer, you will need to file a petition to modify visitation to alter the parenting plan.
