When does summer visitation begin?

mens divorce lawyer Janet Yu JohnstonQuestion:

My custody agreement states my child’s summer visitation with me begins the last day of the school year, which is schedule for June 8.

However, because of increased snow days, the last day of the year has been pushed back. Do I still get parenting time with my child on June 8 or have to wait until the new last day of school?


I am not licensed to practice law in your state so I am unable to give you specific advice. However, I can advise you generally.

The answer to your question depends on a few factors: does your court order state that you get custody on that date since it is the last day of school? If so, then I would say that you likely should get your child on the true last day of school.

If you are able to discuss things with your ex, you could attempt to see if you could still get your child on June 8 and just make sure that your child is able to finish out the remainder of the school year.

Of course, that depends on whether you reside close to your ex, and whether you have the capability to ensure that your child can attend their school.

Without looking at your court order, I am not able to advise you further. I would recommend that you speak with an attorney to revise your court order to clarify this situation for the future.

For a more in-depth answer, please consult a family law attorney in your jurisdiction.
