The holidays are here, which means many parents who went through a divorce recently undoubtedly have questions about their Standard Possession Schedule and how that might change with Christmas and New Year’s on the horizon.
The quick answer is that it depends on your final order, along with any special agreement you’ve made with the other parent. But if your children are in the Lewisville Independent School District or another with a similar schedule, our compassionate team of family law attorneys put together an easily digestible overview of the Standard Possession Schedule for the holidays.
As always, please consult your order first, as it will govern the schedule for your family.
Holiday Standard Possession Schedule
If families have a standard possession schedule under Section 153 of the Texas Family Code and live in Lewisville ISD or a district with a similar calendar, their Christmas will look like this:
1. Christmas Holidays (in Even-Numbered Years)
2. Christmas Holidays (in Odd-Numbered Years)
Since 2022 is an even year, we look at #1 on this list. This year, Lewisville ISD has an early release for Christmas break on December 16, 2022. So, for Christmas this year, the possessory conservator has possession of the child beginning Friday, December 16 at 6 p.m. through Wednesday, December 28, at noon. Then, the managing conservator has possession of the child beginning Wednesday, December 28 at noon through Wednesday, January 4, 2023, at 6 p.m. because January 4th is the day before school resumes.
