Denver, CO asked in Family Law, Child Custody and Child Support for Colorado

Q: Can custodial parent deny vacation time?

If the Parenting Agreement says we get 2 weeks vacation and just have to let the mother know 14 days in advance, where we are going, and contact numbers to get ahold of the child. The parenting agreement does not say there are certain times in which we can take vacation, or that we need approval from custodial parent for vacation time unless its international travel. Can she deny our vacation time?

A: Based on what you are saying you are entitled to two weeks of summer time, however it would be necessary to review the parenting plan to interpret it specifically. Many plans require coordination or provide a provision for conflicting choices of time.
