Thanksgiving & Christmas Visitation
For The Year 2017
This article is for non-custodial parents with TEXAS visitation orders.
In Texas, non-custodial parents have visitation (possession) for Thanksgiving in odd-numbered years beginning at 6:00 p.m. on the day the child is dismissed from school before Thanksgiving and ending at 6:00 p.m. on the following Sunday or Monday if the order allows for extended possession. Based on the Standard Texas Possession schedule, the non-custodial conservator will not have visitation/possession for Thanksgiving in 2018. The non-custodial parent, this year, should have the third Friday. November 17th through Sunday November 26th or to 8:00 a.m. Monday, November 27th if you have standard extended possession.
The Christmas holidays in Texas are divided in half by odd and even years. The non-custodial parent in odd years (2017) will have the right to possession of the child beginning at noon December 28, 2017. The Christmas possession will end at 6:00 p.m. the day before school resumes or on the day school resumes if the non-custodial parent has expanded standard possession. The non-custodial parent will also have the 1st & 3rd Fridays of December 2017, 12/1 – 12/3 and 12/15 – 12/17. Make sure that you get a copy of the School District Calendar.
