I hope everyone is having a happy New Year! We are almost to February, so let’s see what we have on tap for standard visitation this month under the Texas standard possession order.
For practice, let’s all pull out our monthly calendar for this month. As you can see, the first and third Friday of this month falls on the 6th and 20th of the month. That means your standard possession this month will be on those weekends. There is not a 5th Friday this month, so only two standard possession weekends this month.
Your Thursdays this month will fall on the 5th, 12th, 19th, and 26th of the month. If you still have the old standard possession Wednesdays during the week then your visits would be on the 4th, 11th, 18th and the 25th.
While we have our calendar out, let’s look at the sole holiday this month. President’s day is on the 16th of the month and many kids will be out of school on that date. Quiz: will this holiday belong to the non-custodial or custodial parent?
Answer: since it follow the 2nd Friday of the month, under a Texas standard possession, order it will belong to the custodial parent. In comparison, see the Martin Luther Kink holiday from last month to see what would have happened in the event it followed a 1st, 3rd or 5th Friday.
As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to comment below.
Next month we will review Spring Break and I will be adding a post soon that discusses what an “extended weekend” is as I have been referencing those a bunch in the last two posts.
In the near future I will be adding a feature where you can pay me a nominal fee to review your decree and answer specific questions that you may have.
