Happy Father’s Day To Texas Dads With Standard Possession Orders
If you are a father living in Texas, and you have possession of your children pursuant to a standard possession order, June brings great news: extra time to spend with your kids!
How does this work? A standard possession order grants visitation on the first, third and fifth weekend of every month. The last weekend in May, May 31-June 2, is considered the 5th weekend of May. Therefore, the first weekend in June is June 7th- June 9th. That means you will have possession of your children two weekends in a row, during the fifth weekend of May and the first weekend of June.
The very next weekend, the second weekend of June, is Father’s Day. Father’s Day means additional periods of possession for Texas dads. Most fathers are entitled to spend the entire Father’s Day weekend with their children, making Father’s Day the third weekend in a row that you will have possession of your kids.
The 3rd weekend in June is June 21st-June 23rd and the standard possession order is in effect, making this weekend the fourth consecutive weekend that you will have possession. Happy Father’s Day to all Texas dads, and for those with standard possession orders, enjoy this June gift of more time with your children!
