Summer is a time for swimming, vacations, relaxing, and sometimes lots of confusion if you are a divorced parent.
The standard schedule in Texas is for the non-primary parent to have 30 days in the summer.
I typically see this parent exercise the full 30 days at once. However, many court orders provide that this time can be broken up into two separate periods. In my experience, this tends to be better for younger children, so they aren’t separated from either parent for an extended period of time.
At the end of the day, if the parents can agree, they can do whatever they want. The court order and summer schedule only comes into play when there is disagreement.
