Court order states that the exchange is at 7:00 pm on Friday night. Nothing about sports or activities except for in the summer. The court order states that in the summer the noncustodial parent gets their full allotment of visitation lost due to activities.
There is nothing in the court order that states this but during the school year It has been an unwritten work around that the weekend is swapped so that noncustodial parent gets visitation on a later weekend and the child gets to participate in the sport or activity. This has been the case for the past 2 years until this week. Custodial parent just repeats you forfeit your visitation and says they will not show up to exchange because of the one child’s sport activity.
Can someone say that? Absolutely. It happens all the time.
