How do I add a summer break period of possession for one parent inside of a summer break period of possession for the other parent?
*Example: Non-custodial parent has extended summer possession of the child from June 3- June16 and the custodial parent has a weekend period of possession inside and outside of non-custodial parent’s extended summer period of possession.
Use the summer break template to create the non-custodial parent’s extended summer period of possession. Select “custodial” before saving. (i.e. Non-custodial parent’s extended summer period of possession of July 1- July 31)
Use the custom schedule template to create the custodial parent’s weekend summer periods of possession inside and/or outside of the non-custodial parent’s extended summer period of possession. Do NOT select “Custodial” in this circumstance and enable the “Override this time period” option. Click “Add” to save this period of possession to your parenting calendar. (i.e. Custodial parent’s July 13-15 weekend)
