I have strayed a bit from my examination of Indiana's Parenting Time Guidelines. With luck, next month will see a completion of what I started.

One gift given us by The Indiana Parenting Time Guidelines is the uniformity of holiday visitation. I still see disputes about who gets the children on what holiday. As the following Guideline points out, holiday visitation trumps regular visitation. The second paragraph ought to make that clear.

1. Conflicts Between Regular and Holiday Weekends.
The Holiday Parenting Time Schedule shall take precedence over regularly scheduled and extended parenting time. Extended parenting time takes precedence over regular parenting time unless otherwise indicated in these Guidelines.

If the non-custodial parent misses a regular weekend because it is the custodial parent?s holiday, the regular alternating parenting time schedule will resume following the holiday. If the non-custodial parent receives two consecutive weekends because of a holiday, the regular alternating parenting time schedule will resume the following weekend with the custodial parent.
As for the commentary, this is it:
Recognizing there are individuals of varying faiths who celebrate holidays other than those set out in the guidelines, the parties should try to work out a holiday visitation schedule that fairly divides the holidays which they celebrate over a two-year period in as equal a manner as possible.
