The short answer is “it depends.” An attorney would first need to know a very important answer to the following question: “Do you have a signed Court Order?”
If the answer is yes, then you need to follow the specific instructions in the Court Order. The Court’s directives can be difficult to fully understand. So, you may want to set up an appointment with one of our family law attorneys to help you understand your requirements. If the Court Order prohibits you from leaving the state, then you would need to petition the court to allow you this visitation. The key is to prepare in advance and meet with your attorney as soon as you can. Getting a holiday visitation that is not allowed in a Court Order can be challenging and you need to give yourself time to petition the Court.
