Customer Question

WE RECENTLY WENT TO COURT AND RECIVED TEMPORARY ORDERS FOR MY HUSBANDS 1 YEAR OLD. WE DONT UNDERSTAND IF WE GET THE CHILD ON THURSDAYS DURING THE SUMMER OR IF WE PICK HIM UP ON THURSDAYS AT 6 FOR OUR WEEKENDS ON 1ST 3RD AND 5TH WEEKEND DURING THE SUMMER. DOES THAT MAKE SENSE?

Thanks for using Just Answer:
Can you write out exactly what your order says? A lot hinges on the exact wording. It can go either way.

Thank you! Okay, so during the summer (going by the school district in which the child lives) your husband will have weekend possession starting thursday at 6 pm and ending at 6 pm on Sunday on the first third and 5th weekends. During the rest of the year, he gets thursday from 6-8 each week, and "normal" first third and fifth weekends (fri-sun).
