>Give Notice-See your order's requirements: If you’re serious about seeing your kids for the summer, give your notice of extended possession dates to the other parent by the required deadlines. This applies to both the custodial parent and non-custodial parent. Get your dates in, otherwise accept the default summer possession dates if you have a standard possession order. >Check School Calendars: If you have a standard possession order regarding when your summer possession periods can begin and end, be sure to check your child’s local school district vacation calendar for when school goes out for summer break and when school resumes for the fall. This will help avoid confusion and help you select appropriate vacation planning dates.
