STANDARD VISITATION SCHEDULE
The non-custodial parent shall have visitation with all minor children of the parties as follows:
Every other weekend from 6:00 p.m. Friday to 6:00 p.m. Sunday
In odd numbered years (i.e. 2001, etc.) the non-custodial parent shall have visitation on the following schedule of holidays:
Easter: 6:00 p.m. Friday preceding Easter until 10:00 p.m. Sunday
July 4th: 6:00 p.m. evening preceding July 4 until 10:00 p.m. July 4th
Thanksgiving: 6:00 p.m. Wednesday preceding Thanksgiving until 6:00 p.m. Sunday
Christmas: 6:00 p.m. day school is out until 10:00 p.m. Christmas Eve
On even numbered years (i.e. 2002, etc.) the non-custodial parent shall have visitation on the following schedule of holidays:
Memorial Day: 6:00 p.m. Friday preceding Memorial Day until 10:00 p.m. Monday
Labor Day: 6:00 p.m. Friday preceding Labor Day until 10:00 p.m. Monday
Christmas: 12:00 p.m. (noon) Christmas Day until 10:00 p.m. January 1st
The holiday visitation schedule set out above is to be observed whether or not it coincides with the regular every other week visitation schedule and is in addition thereto. However, it is intended that the holidays alternate between custodial and non-custodial parents. Therefore, on those occasions when non-custodial visitation is ordinarily scheduled on a holiday set aside to the custodial parent, the non-custodial visitation shall not take place.
With respect to Father's Day and Mother's Day, if the father is the non-custodial parent, and if Father's Day falls on a weekend not regularly scheduled for paternal visitation, he shall have visitation on Father's Day from 12:00 p.m. (noon) until 10:00 p.m. If Mother's Day falls within a weekend of the father's visitation, he shall return the child/children to the mother by 12:00 p.m. (noon) on Mother's Day. If the mother is the non-custodial parent, the reverse shall apply.
The non-custodial parent shall have summer visitation from 8:00 a.m. June 15th until 10:00 p.m. June 30th and from 8:00 a.m. August 1st until 10:00 p.m. August 15th.
IT IS IMPORTANT TO BE AWARE THAT THIS VISITATION SCHEDULE IS FOR THE PURPOSE OF PROVIDING ASSURED MINIMUM AMOUNTS OF VISITATION BETWEEN NON-CUSTODIAL PARENT AND CHILD/CHILDREN. VISITATION SHOULD EXCEED THE NUMBER OF OCCASIONS SET OUT HEREIN. IN ADDITION, LIBERAL TELEPHONE COMMUNICATIONS BETWEEN NON-CUSTODIAL PARENT AND CHILD/CHILDREN ARE ENCOURAGED AND SHOULD OCCUR.
