Asked in Family Law for Florida

Q: I have a custody/time sharing agreement with my daughters Father that changes for summer. I need it to be clarified.

During the school year, our agreement is 9 days at home, 5 days away. He picks her up Thursday, she comes home Tuesday, then she is home the next 9 days til Thurs. Then in summer, the schedule changes to Sunday to Sunday, back and forth with each parent 1 week. So for June 2021. Her Dad has her June 3rd until June 8th. That is when I would normally pick her up. BUT, Tues June 8th is the last day of school, 1st day of summer. My understanding is since weeks dont start on Tuesdays, & he has her Sun the 6th, she would remain with him until Sun, the 13th.

He disagrees to this and is telling me I am suppose to pick her up the 8th, and the rotation starts on the 13th.

Summer starts the 8th. When does the Sunday to Sunday time sharing begin. on the 6th, or the 13th.

A: Unfortunately if the two of you can not agree on the interpretation of the agreement then the only remedy is to seek court intervention. My recommendation is that the two of you try to reach a compromise.

A: I agree with my colleague. The parenting plan anticipates that both parents will agree to minor changes and will only seek court intervention as a last resort. Try to compromise on the interpretation. It's not worth spending thousands of dollars and missing time from work for a judge to tell you what the agreement means.
