Hello,
Thank you for allowing us to assist you with this problem.

The 1st, 3rd, and 5th are written to account for months that have 5 weekends. In most situations your ex will only have the 1st and 3rd weekend then you will have the 2nd and 4th weekend. The 5th weekend only comes into being a factor for a month contining 5 weekends such as October. Today is the 1st weekend though Friday was actually the 30th of last month.

thankyou sir , can you please also clarify please clarify if friday and saturday fall in end of one month and sunday fall on ist of next month then would it be considered 5th weekend or 1st weekend.
Expert:  Daniel Solutions replied 2 years ago.
The new example would be an example of December 2011. The last weekend Dec 30, 31, and Jan 1st would be the 5th weekend. However, keep in mind that this specific weekend I mentioned falls within Christmas and New Years so if your agreement/order has specific holiday terms, those holiday terms would override your standard visitation agreement.

I hope this helps.

Have a good night.

It is the JustAnswer policy to create a new link for each separate question.
If I have answered your original question I ask that you accept it.

Your new question answer depends upon whether your exhusband was awarded the house in the divorce and several other factors.
