November 2020 Standard Possession Order

Hi, Chris Schmiedeke from Divorce Simplified. I hope everyone had a happy Halloween. Today, I wanted to talk about the standard possession order for November. This is a Texas standard possession order. Pretty standard month, with the exception of, we have Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving holiday this year, it is an even year so it is the custodial parent’s Thanksgiving break. The calendar for November 2020 is not looking good for the visiting parents this month. You did get a good October as you had the first, third, and you had the fifth Friday.  That was good for October, but now you’re paying the Piper in November. Visiting parents, you are going to have the Thursdays this month which are the 5th, 12th, and the 19th. You’re going to have your first Friday of the month, which is Friday the 6th until Sunday the 8th.  However, you are going to lose your third Friday of the month.  Children are dismissed from school on the third Friday of this month, and it is the custodial parent’s Thanksgiving this year.

So the custodial parent will pick up on the 20th when the kids are dismissed from school and they will have them until the Sunday following Thanksgiving. Visiting parent, your next possession after Thanksgiving will be Thursday, December the 3rd, and of course, your first Friday, which would be December the 4th.

So, there you go. Not a too detailed month. I’m sorry visiting parents, that definitely does not look very good for you this month, but hopefully, next month will be better.  Talk to you next month.
