In the midst of the summer season, it may become necessary to consider how vacation time will be shared. Vacation time will generally supercede the regular custody schedule. Additionally, parties usually need to give at least thirty days written notice as to when they intend to exercise their vacation. Your custody order should dictate what should happen in the event of a conflict where both parties want the same week. Additionally, the order should spell out what additional information you need to provide to the other parent in addition to the requested dates including destination, travel arrangements, names of other parties traveling with the children and the best method of contact for the children. In the event your Order provides for more than one week vacation, check to see if weeks can be exercised consecutively or not.
