‘Tacked On’ Vacation For Extended Parenting Time

Omaha Nebraska Divorce LawyerQuestion:

In my parenting plan it reads the father will have two uninterrupted weeks during the summer.

One of the weeks we agreed to will start on a weekend they are with me. The problem is the next weekend is not my planned weekend with them but is Father’s Day so I will have my kids again.

My question is would my uninterrupted week start when I picked them up for my weekend or at the end of my weekend?


I am unable to give you legal advice on divorce. I can give general divorce help for men, though, my knowledge is based on Nebraska divorce laws where I am licensed to practice.

Most child custody orders pertaining to parenting time have language included that clarifies whether vacation time can be “tacked on” to other types of parenting time.

Some plans clearly preclude vacation time from being tacked on to other types of visitation, so that a parent cannot create an overly long block of parenting time. Other plans might not address the issue, in which case the issue would be open to interpretation.

I would advise you to carefully read the order pertaining to your parenting time to see if “tacking on” is addressed. If not, you may need to file a motion to clarify so the court can interpret the meaning of its order.
