HelloThis is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.
I suggest you are correct. Vacation shall include summer vacation. And yes, you can get clarification from the GAL. Generally, this is spelled out in the order. But when it is not, then I suggest you seek clarification as to what parent will have the children during summer vacations, giving notice of what dates they want to have the children at least 30 days in advance, etc.
Many times, parents will agree for the 5 or 6 or 7 weeks of summer vacation based on odd or even years. Or they can divide it equally with dates being determined at least 30 days before that vacation begins. And as long as it does not overlap with certain holidays that the other parent is to have, etc.
I suggest yes. That is correct. If you agree to only one week, then later you will need to have that modified through another proceeding. And in that regard, I suggest it is most prudent to have a firm definition of what is being meant by "equally share" as it pertains to Summer Vacation.
The Term Vacation should be defined.
