I submitted my summer parenting request on 3/31 (had to by

This answer was rated:

I submitted my summer parenting request on 3/31 (had to by 4/1/09 by IN guidelines). On 4/2 she e-mails "Evan will need to attend mandatory summer school near the end of summer" and I'll have to take them. I live 40 min away and sch is every Tue/Thur morn.

I replied that day "You hadn't told me anything about the possibility of Evan needing to take summer sch until today, so that may need to change the interval that I would have the kids this summer."

After connecting w/ Principal, I e-mailed my revised request on 4/23 which had 35 overnights for me (higher # XXXXX first request).

a) She wants to go with my 3/31 request, rather than my 4/23 request. Do I have a legitimate case that I didn't know about summer sch, so my request on 4/23 should be taken as my official request, even though sent after the 4/1 deadline? Does she need to honor my 4/23 request?

b) If my 4/23 request could stand up in court, can my specifics of them every Mon & Tues night with no weekends inbetween?
Thanks for your question. I would argue that yes she needs to do so here. You amended as soon as you knew there was a problem. No delay on your part that I see,

And as far as part two sure you can argue this. You are entitled to visitation and you are trying to work with the problems that developed late here. I think you are responding reasonably and are attemptin g in good faith to present a realistic plan in the matter ..
