If my court order says that we get Summer visitation from Friday to a Friday does the First Fridays have to fall on the weekends that would be our scheduled visitation? Or could I have my visitation on a weekend and then start my summer vacation on the following weekend that would originally be my ex's weekends? Which would then give me three weekends in a row? Or is it common knowledge that it should start on the weekend that would be yours to begin with?
A weeklong visitation would generally begin on a scheduled visitation weekend, unless a court order specified certain weeks by dates.
This will depend in large part upon what your Order says. Many Orders provide that you are to select your summer visitation weeks by a certain date, usually before the summer starts. If your Order does not provide for this, I would consult the Order to determine which party (you or your former spouse) gets to select the specific weeks of visitation you get during the summer.
