You’ve been looking forward to the holiday season all year. Maybe you have family coming in for your favorite food, favorite games, annual football games, or annual hunting trip. You took days off and everyone is looking forward to it. Then, the worst happens. Whether it is an excuse, a misunderstanding of the court order, or an outright denial of the children — there you are, heading for an embarrassing and depressing holiday.
The Texas Standard Possession Order, and most custom visitation orders, provide visitation for the children during the Thanksgiving holiday, the Christmas holiday, and the New Year’s holiday. They distinguish each parent’s rights to that particular holiday as to odd or even years. The dates and times for pick up and drop off are set out in the court order.
One should put the other parent on notice, call in advance to the school with a copy of your court order and do whatever you can in advance to make sure you don’t get denied your holiday season visitation.
If you do get denied, or anticipate you will, call The Barrera Firm for a free consultation to enforce your rights, get your attorney fees paid and get your make up time, while the person violating the court order may get fined or be otherwise punished.
