I am the custodial (sole custody) parent (Father) of my 11 year old daughter. I have had custody since she was an infant after her mother was deemed unfit. There is a visitation order in place giving her alternate weekend visits (Friday @ 6pm - Sunday @ 6pm). As well one week in the summer, and Christmas eve/Day access on a rotating schedule annually. I am planning for a 14 day trip to Disneyworld leaving on a sunday following a visit. The problem is the vacation would extend into the next scheduled weekend visit. I asked the mother if she would be in agreement to miss that weekend if I offered her an alternate at her convenience. She declined. So, my question is am I require to shorten the vacation to meet the visitation schedule or are there any options that would allow us to take this 14 day trip?
