Atlanta, GA asked in Family Law and Child Custody for Georgia

Q: I’m suppose to pick my son at 6pm for a holiday schedule, but i leave work at 7pm. Can i pick him up at 8pm?

My court order says: K

The parties shall notify the other party within a reasonable

time (defined as not less than seventy-two (72) hours in non-

emergency situations) prior to their custodial periods of their

intent not to exercise said physical custodial periods. Each party

shall, on all occasions when a party does not plan to exercise his

or her previously-planned custodial periods, or expect that he or

she will be delayed in so doing, or intends to return the child

sooner than expected, such party will give to the other party as

much advance notice as practicable. Both parties shall

encourage the child in anticipating periods of custodial visitation

with the other.

A: Going by what you have posted and assuming that is the order, then if you give advanced notice you should be able to do so. Be sure to discuss it with the other parent so there are no conflicts
