The Indiana Parenting Time Guidelines state that Spring Break 2019 is to be exercised by the “non-custodial parent”. Spring Break is defined as two (2) hours after the child is released from school on the child’s last day of school before Spring Break, and ending at 7:00 p.m. on the last day before school resumes. This means, depending on your alternating weekend schedule, that the non-custodial parent could receive three (3) weekends in a row this year, which is acceptable per the Guidelines.
Also, as a reminder, the Guidelines state that non-custodial parents must notify the custodial parent by April 1 of each year of their selection of their extended summer parenting time. If notice is not given by that date, the Guidelines state that the custodial parent shall make the selection. This deadline is fast approaching so be sure to seek guidance from the Indiana Parenting Time Guidelines (https://www.in.gov/judiciary/rules/parenting/ ) if issues arise.
