Title: Wednesday visitation is now Thursdays
Post by: mtbitara on Feb 12, 2004, 08:33:59 PM
In October 2002 a judge stated in her order I can spend time with my kids on Wednesdays 6p-8p. In September last year (2003) the Texas legislature changed that to Thursdays.

Can I pick up my sons on Thursdays, or do I need a judge's order first?

You will need to go by your current court order, or ask the court for a modification.

I believe you go by what is written in your order.  All new orders will should say Thursday.  I no longer have a SS to worry about since he is 20 now but I think I will go check out this new order.  It sounds like you could have more time with a child by having a Thursday overnight and then starting a weekend after school or Friday.  In effect having the child from after school on Thursday till school resumes on Monday morning.

Like I said, I haven't looked at the new laws in a while so off I go to look.....

From the looks of the new "Standard Visitation" they have eliminated the option to keep the child till school resumes on Monday.
