1. Alternating weekends from Friday at 6:00 p.m. until Sunday at6:00 p.m.
2. Every Tuesday evening from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.
3.In odd-numbered years, (i.e. 2003, 2005, etc.) the non-custodial parent shall have visitation on the following holidays:
Easter: 6:00 p.m. Friday preceding Easter until 6:00 p.m. Easter Sunday
July 4th: 6:00 p.m. July 3rd until 6:00 p.m. July 5th
Thanksgiving: 6:00 p.m. Wednesday preceding Thanksgiving until 6:00 p.m. Sunday following Thanksgiving
Christmas Day: 9:00 p.m. on Christmas Eve until 6:00 p.m. January 2nd
4.In even-numbered years, (i.e. 2002, 2004, etc.) the non-custodial parent shall have visitation on the following holidays:
Memorial Day: 6:00 p.m. Friday preceding Memorial Day until 6:00 p.m. Memorial Day
Labor Day: 6:00 p.m. Friday preceding Labor Day until 6:00 p.m. Labor Day
Christmas Eve: 6:00 p.m. the day resident school district's classes close until 9:00 p.m. December 24th
The holiday visitation schedule set out above is to be observed whether or not it coincides with the regular every other weekend visitation schedule and is in addition thereto. It is intended that the holidays alternate between custodial and non-custodial parents. Therefore, on those occasions when non-custodial alternating weekend visitation is ordinarily scheduled on a holiday set aside to the custodial parent, the noncustodial alternating weekend visitation shall not take place, but shall resume on the weekend following the holiday.
Likewise, the custodial parent shall enjoy the first weekend after any of the non-custodial parent's holiday visitations which fall on a weekend, whereupon the regular alternating weekend visitation shall resume.
MOTHER'S DAY AND FATHER'S DAY:
5.The father is to have Father's Day weekend and the mother is to have Mother's Day weekend (6:00 p.m. Friday until 6:00 p.m. Sunday, respectively). This is in addition to and prevails over regular alternating weekend visitation.
MOTHER'S BIRTHDAY AND FATHER'S BIRTHDAY:
6.Each parent is to have visitation on that parent's birthday each year from 9:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m., as with holiday visitation set forth above.
7.In even-numbered years, the non-custodial parent shall have visitation from 6:00 p.m. on the Friday school recesses for Spring Break until 6:00 p.m. the Sunday before school resumes. Likewise, the custodial parent shall have the Spring Break visitation in odd-numbered years.
8.The non-custodial parent shall have summer visitation each year from 6:00 p.m. on July 5 until 6:00 p.m. on August 9. During this period, the custodial parent is to have alternating weekend visits and Tuesday visits just like the non-custodial parent has through the year as set forth above: PROVIDED the non-custodial parent shall have two (2) uninterrupted weeks of visitation during said period at his or her option; PROVIDED further that the custodial parent shall have two (2) uninterrupted weeks with the child(ren) in the month of June at his or her option. Child support for the month of July shall be abated if summer visitation is actually exercised as above set forth.
9.The non-custodial parent is hereby granted a "right of first refusal", meaning that anytime the custodial parent requires child care for the minor child(ren) while the custodial parent works or otherwise, the custodial parent shall so advise the non-custodial parent and the non-custodial parent shall have the right to request visitation in substitute for the needed child care; provided that the non-custodial parent can personally provide such needed child care.
10.The non-custodial parent shall bear and assume the cost and responsibility of transportation for visitation purposes, except that during the summer visitation with the non-custodial parent, the custodial parent shall assume the cost and responsibility of transportation for his or her visitation purposes.
11.It is important to be aware that this visitation schedule is for the purpose of providing assured MINIMUM amounts of visitation between the non-custodial parent and child(ren). The Court encourages cooperation between the parents to permit such additional visitations of the non-custodial parent and the child(ren), together with liberal telephone communication between the non-custodial parent and the child(ren), without interference or monitoring.
12.Violation of an order providing for the visitation of a noncustodial parent with any of the children of such non-custodial parent may be enforced by the non-custodial parent by indirect civil contempt. Unless the custodial parent establishes good cause for noncompliance, the non-custodial parent shall be entitled to recover court coss and attorney fees expended in enforcing the order. Repeated violations may be cause for modifying custody or visitation.
13.If the parents can agree to a different visitation schedule to accommodate their particular circumstances, the above visitation schedule may be modified by an agreed to order submitted to the Court.
