This Sunday is Easter Sunday, and for many in San Antonio, it’s one of the most important holidays of the year. But it’s not a holiday that the Texas Family Code deals with explicitly in the same way that it handles Thanksgiving or Christmas or New Year’s Day. That’s...

If you follow the standard possession orders for parenting time in the Texas Family Code, as many divorced parents in Texas do, there’s a specific section for spring break, but it’s different for parents who live 100 miles apart or less than it is for parents who live more than 100 miles apart.
The extreme weather we’ve experienced this week is astounding and hopefully once-in-a-lifetime. We’d hate for any of us who have had to endure the past week’s trials and tribulations to repeat it, as a lot of people’s days and nights were consumed by just surviving, enduring, and innovating to meet their basic needs.

The issue of how parenting time works for parents in different states usually brings two different factors in play for Texas: One is how state laws can differ, though that’s typically not a factor if the current decree is for the state where the child primarily resides. The other is what happens when parents live more than 100 miles apart.
