In Utah the standard visitation schedule for children ages 5-18 is basically as follows:
The noncustodial parent will have the child one weekday evening and alternating weekends continuing year-to-year. The noncustodial parent is also entitled to alternating holidays. Holiday time and birthdays take precedence over normal weekends. Weekend rotation is not subject to change because of the holiday schedule.
The holiday schedule is set out as such: In years ending in an odd number the noncustodial parent will have the child for the child’s birthday either the day before or after the actual birth date, the weekend of Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday beginning on Friday and ending on Monday, spring break, July 4th holiday, Labor Day weekend, fall school break, Veteran’s day holiday, and the first portion of Christmas school vacation.
In years ending in an even number the noncustodial parent is scheduled to have the child for the child’s birthday on the actual birth date, President’s Day holiday beginning on a Friday and ending on a Monday, Memorial Day weekend, July 24th holiday, Columbus Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving holiday from Wednesday evening until Sunday evening, and the second portion of the Christmas school vacation.
The custodial parent is entitled to the same holiday schedule in the opposite years. In addition to the weekday/weekend and holiday schedules each parent is allowed two weeks of uninterrupted time over the extended school break (such as summer vacation). The noncustodial parent is allowed an additional two weeks of visitation time with the child. All four weeks can be taken consecutively. These extended visits cannot interfere with the other parent’s holiday schedule, but can interfere with the normal weekend rotation.
