Holidays

So, I'm Jewish and we celebrate both the Jewish holidays and the Christian holidays because I'm Messianic. Well, now BM is trying to say that because Christmas falls on her weekend, she gets to have our son for Christmas eve and Christmas morning and that we can have him at 12. That is NOT fair at all, because she had him Christmas even and morning last year and they're supposed to be sharing holidays, but she says that she is going to share, just not the eve and morning. What the heck are we supposed to do with this? She's just doing this to be a brat again because every now and then she tries to throw us a curve ball to ruin our happiness.

Our order specifically says that ANY holdiay time superscedes any regular parenting time. This means, that if Christmas was ours this year, but it falls on BM's time, then BM's time would be rescheduled and we would get Christmas like the order says. Maybe you guys should have something like that put in?

Get to court and get this taken care of asap! Fight for your holiday time! Good luck!

Yeah we are defnitely going to have to do that, file a motion and all. I think my husband is going to wait until he actually files again and then just add that in.

Not sure if you can do this where you live but b/c we had this same issue/argument every holiday it now says specifically in our order what the arrangement is- starting at a particular year- say this year- and alternating each year. YOu may have to offer her the 1st year (we always had to) but at least that way the arrangements are set in stone for each year and you know exactly when you'll have them, well ahead of time.

Agree with Desera, if it is in an order that you split all holidays, she needs to abide by that. I don't have an order yet with my ex, but we have decided to split every holiday and last year I had them for Christmas and he got them on the 26th, and this year I will get them back on the 26th to celebrate. (unless he decides he wants them again like that, he is pretty flexible)
