My question involves a child custody case from the State of: TX
My question is regarding the school closing the week after spring break. The specific wording on the school web site states:
"Out of an abundance of caution for the health and well-being of our students and staff, we have decided that ALL Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD schools will be closed Monday, March 16 through Friday, March 20, 2020."
The wording in the court paperwork is a standard possession order and states:
Father shall have the right of possession as follows...
Spring Vacation in Even-Numbered Years - In even-numbered years, beginning at 6:00 p.m. on the day the child is dismissed from school for the school's spring vacation and ending at 6:00 p.m. on the day before school resumes after that vacation.
There is additional wording that the the Monday following the holiday is a student, teacher, federal, state or local holiday, possession shall end at 6:00 pm on that Monday.
The mother and father both disagree and claim they should have possession during the week the school is closed. The child is 15 y.o. and wishes to stay with the father.
Father is reading that possession ends at 6:00 pm on the day before school resumes. Since school is not resuming as scheduled, the child should go back the day before school resumes.
The mother claims she is the custodial parent, despite the papers saying both parents are joint managing conservators. She claims the papers are not correct, but has no reason why and no superseding papers.
While I know that nobody can predict what someone else would say, I am looking for opinions on how this might be interpreted by
1. The police if they are called to enforce papers.
2. A judge should it be required to go to court.
