Good morning. What does the court order say?
Ask Your Own Legal Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
It says that all major holidays shall be alternated. Christmas eve and New year's eve is Robert on odd years and Christmas day and New year's day is Crystal on odd years. It lays out all other major holidays too. Then it says holiday parenting time shall be from 9 am to 8 pm except provided above. When one party has the children one holiday the other party shall have the children the following holiday. I.e. Christmas eve (mother) Christmas day (father). Crystal is saying that tonight on Christmas eve we get the kids from 9am -8pm only but New year's eve we get an overnight. We believe we're supposed to have the kids overnight tonight until Christmas morning around 9 am
Lawyer: LegalKnowledge, Attorney replied 4 months ago
The court order will control. If it is clear and states what time each parent should have the children it should control.

It doesn't state an exact time for the major holidays. It states that holiday time is 9am to 8 pm except for the major holidays listed above. It says major holidays are alternating. I would believe that means the entire day until the next morning is that correct

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
