How is time child is in possesion calculated?

Stafford, TX |

I realize that the NCP pays child support to help CP afford to care for child... supposedly the in my case, the mother of the child has the child 51% of the time. how is this 51% calculated in texas? I have the child in my custody every 1st 3rd and 5th weekend from friday at 3pm until sunday at 6pm and every thursday from 3 to 8pm, plus 30 days in summer and alternating holidays... does summer count? i was told that summer doesn't count because the child is not in school. is this true?

  1. I don't understand your question. The rights and duties section of the decree provides the right to receive child support from the other parent. Count nights if you're concerned.

    I am not intending this to be legal advice, because I don't know the particulars of your situation. Call me if you would like to discuss this or other isues.
