How does the noncustodial parent choose which days during the summer to spend with the children?
During the Summer months, parents may adopt creative ways to share time with their children. For example, a father is entitled to designate when to use his 30 days of possession during the summer as long as he gives written notice to the mother by April 1. If the mother, in turn, files written notice to the father by April 15, the mother is entitled to one weekend with the children during the father’s summer possession period.
The above summer notifications may look something like this.
What if the noncustodial parent does not give written notice?
If the noncustodial parent does not give written notice, the Texas Family Code defaults to the month of July.
