June is here, and so is the summer. By the time you read this, most kids should be out of school. Some important notes to remember in a standard possession order in Texas: the weekend visitations continue throughout the summer; and weeknight possessions do not. I get this question all the time and for some reason, people cannot figure this out. This is how you tell in your order:
The weekend possessions during the summer are trumped by summer visitation, which is the same for other holidays. Holidays always trump weekend and/or weekday possessions.
For a review of other summer issues please review my post on summer visitation in Texas.
If you are a parent exercising standard visitation in Texas, and you have not otherwise designated some time in June for your Extended Summer Possession, you will have the following weekends:
Again, no Thursdays (or Wednesdays in older orders) this month.
Finally, despite the pandemic and COVID-19 issues, all visits are to take place as normal per the Supreme Court of Texas. You can find further information here.
Have a good summer!
