Father’s Day Parent-time in 2017

Father’s Day is Sunday, June 18 in 2017. Under the standard Utah holiday schedule, the natural or adoptive father of a child is entitled to parent-time that day from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. This special event trumps the regular schedule. However, if you are following the expanded holiday schedule in Utah Code 30-3-35.1 then dad gets to keep the child until 8 a.m. the next morning (or, if the child has school on Monday, to school).

Be aware that some custody decrees do not follow the standard schedule in the Utah Code, especially if one of the parents lives out-of-state. If your order contains different rules for Father’s Day then you should follow what is in your own order.
