Ex husband didn't provide a written notice by the date required and now is trying to take the child for more than days allowed.
If he did not give his required notice his summer visitation is set by default in your court orders July 1 - 31 if within 100 miles of child's primary residence or June 15 to July 27 if more than 100 miles from child's residence. You either can seek law enforcement assistance or retain family law counsel to file for a writ of habeas corpus or attachment or an enforcement.
You can agree or you can tell him to stick to the order.
What is best for the chikd?
This answer DOES NOT establish an attorney-client relationship. This answer is based on the limited information provided and is not intended to be conclusive advice. There are likely other factors that might influence or change the advice after a more lengthy consultation.
Read your court order very carefully. The April 1 clause does not give him more days than allowed but the option to change when he takes his 30 or 42 summer days. Regardless if he gave you notice, unless he obtained your consent, he cannot have the kids for more than the summer days allowed. You have right to file to enforce the order if he is operating outside of it in a way that creeps on your possession days. You as the custodial parent has all other days not addressed in the order.
