Disagreement with visitation schedule


Dear 2confused:

Greetings. It sounds to me like your ex is mistaken, since the order does not state that you will change weekends. Since Christmas and his weekend fell at the same time, I doubt that gives him “additional” time. Good luck.

I currently have a consent order in effect which specifies visitation during the holidays. The order states that visitation starts with my ex on 2:00 pm Christmas day until school resumes on Monday. Our daughter is four and visitation did start at 2:00pm and he brought our daughter to daycare Monday (yesterday) morning. I picked her up at daycare Monday evening. The weekend of Christmas was also his regular weekend for visitation. My ex is telling my that he will also have visitation with our daughter this weekend December 31st. Am I understanding this correctly? Why would he have visitation two weekends in a row if he returned her to daycare on Monday? I realize when she starts school next year he will have visitation for part of the 2 weeks that school recesses. Please help me understand this.
