Child Vacation

I’m looking to plan a vacation around the holidays. We have a custody agreement where the holidays and vacations supersedes regular schedule. If it is a trip mainly for my daughter, do I have to obtain permission for days that will be missed in the regular schedule?

No, you do not need to get consent to go on a vacation as long as you are following the vacation terms set forth in your custody order and as long as your custody order doesn’t require that you get consent.

If you were to plan a vacation that does not follow the vacation terms, then you would need consent from the other parent.
