Navigating summer visitation schedules can be a daunting task for divorced parents. The Carlson Law Firm, a nationally-recognized law firm serving families throughout Texas, understands the complexities involved and is here to help you make sense of the summer visitation codes. Whether you are the managing conservator or possessory conservator, it is important to know your rights and responsibilities. Let's break it down:

Managing Conservator vs. Possessory Conservator:

  • The managing conservator is the parent with the exclusive right to designate the primary residence of the child and has day-to-day care responsibilities.
  • The possessory conservator typically follows a possession schedule and has the right to access the child on a defined schedule.

Extended Summer Possession:

  • Extended summer possession allows the possessory conservator to have the child for a longer period during summer break.
  • The length of extended summer possession and the notice requirements depend on the distance between the managing and possessory conservators.

Important Considerations:

  • Notice deadlines: Failure to provide written notice by the specified dates may affect the possession periods.
  • Father's Day: Father's Day is reserved for the father, and it does not replace a regular weekend period of possession.
