Are you ready for Summer?
As a reminder non-custodial parents shall give notice of their election to the custodial parent of their extended parenting time with the children by April 1.
The relevant section of the Indiana Parenting Time Guidelines is included for you below:
One-half of the Summer Vacation. The summer vacation begins the day after school lets out for the summer and ends the day before school resumes for the new school year. The time may be either consecutive or split into two (2) segments. The noncustodial parent shall give notice to the custodial parent of the selection by April 1 of each year. If such notice is not given, the custodial parent shall make the selection and notify the other parent. All notices shall be given in writing and verbally. A timely selection may not be rejected by the other parent. Notice of an employer's restrictions on the vacation time of either parent shall be delivered to the other parent as soon as that information is available. In scheduling parenting time the employer imposed restrictions on either parent's time shall be considered by the parents in arranging their time with their child.
When setting your schedule, it is also important to remember the other holidays in the summer which are:
