Fulshear, TX asked in Family Law for Texas

Q: Hello, I have a standard visitation order with my ex husband for our 2 children. The school is out till April 13.

Do I follow the school term Thursday at 6.00 p.m. to Monday at 6.00 p.m. rule or the other one since the school is technically in term but not on for another month and possibly for the rest of the school year in May? My ex is saying he gets to pick them up Thursday at 6.00 and drop them off Monday at 6.00 p.m. But the order states on weekends that do not occur during regular school term beginning at 6.00 p.m. on 1st, 3rd and 5th Friday and ends at 6.00 p.m. on following Sunday. I would appreciate clarity.

A: Texas Supreme Court has stated to follow orders in place as if school were in session. https://www.txcourts.gov/media/1446251/209050.pdf. Thus you can do as you like by agreement and in absence of an agreement, follow the court order.
