Brighton, CO asked in Child Custody for Colorado

Q: Can a parent exercise "vacation time" and just stay home?

My sons dad said they were going to go on vacation and use one week of their vacation time in our parenting plan. He let me know they actually aren't going out of town, but he's still going to keep him for that week. That week interferes with me taking my son to school on his first day, which would fall on my normally scheduled parenting time. In my opinion, I feel he is doing this to take away valuable first day memories with my son also making it where I wont see my son for a total of 10 days.

Is this abusing vacation time?
