Spring Break 2013: In Texas, the standard possession order awards the primary parent possession of the child(ren) for spring break in odd-numbered years.
Pull out those school calendars and determine when spring break occurs for your child(ren) this year. Please keep in mind when deciding on your spring break destination that if there is an active divorce or child custody case pending involving your child(ren), then your spring break destination may be limited to within the state of Texas. Many Texas courts have standing orders that prohibit either parent from removing the child(ren) from the state of Texas during the pendency of a divorce or custody case. Therefore, you must get court approval or a written agreement with the other parent prior to taking a spring break trip outside of the "Lone Star State."
