Similar to child support, the Texas legislature has set a “Standard Possession Order” wherein it dictates the schedule by which the parties will visit with the children.
It allows for visitation on the 1st, 3rd and 5th weekend of each month, every Thursday evening during the school year, and one month in the summer. This can be extended to including picking the child up from school on Thursday evening and returning the child to school on Monday morning.
Keep in mind, however, that the parties can agree to any visitation schedule they like, and the Court can order any visitation schedule it sees fit and is in the best interest of the children.
