Medford, OK asked in Family Law and Child Custody for Oklahoma

Q: Is "any other times mutually decided and agreed upon by and between parties" enforceable?

In current permanent parenting plan, custody exchanges are detailed except one. The phrase "Any other times mutually decided and agreed on by and between the parties" is included. Ex spouse refuses any and all requests for this as she believes that this is not enforceable if one party backs out of agreement even when we have a law enforcement provision in the order for enforcement.

A: Your question is a bit vague and not sure what the law enforcement provision is regarding to. In general “any other times” is just that times that are not specifically mentioned in the plan (ie. Regular visits, holidays, summer, etc…) and thus these times are merely optional so long as both parties agree. This does not mean any additional times have to be given. This clause allows the parties to switch times and have extra times, it does not mandate additional times.
