On my other website (morganlawlakeway.com) I recently responded to a comment which asked an interesting question – what happens under the Standard Possession Order when a child’s birthday falls on one of the designated holiday periods.
It was interesting to me that I had never had that question before. I actually had to look at the code and do a bit of research because it was new issue for me. I’m sure there are plenty of kids whose birthdays are during one of those periods (for example, Thanksgiving or Christmas vacations) but no client has ever asked. Hopefully this means that most divorced parents are finding ways to communicate and co-parent in their children’s best interest without having to resort to reading the Final Decree with a fine tooth comb or calling a lawyer.
Here is a link to the article I wrote analyzing the birthday vs. holiday Standard Possession Order question.
