Thanksgiving Parent-time in 2019
The “custodial” parent gets the Thanksgiving holiday in 2019 under the Utah in-state parent-time statute. The Thanksgiving holiday is defined as beginning Wednesday (Nov 27) at 7 p.m. until Sunday (Dec 1) at 7 p.m. However if you are following the parent-time schedule in Utah Code 30-3-35.1 then the custodial parent may keep the child(ren) Sunday night and return them to school Monday morning.
If your order follows the out-of-state schedule in Utah Code 30-3-37 then in 2019 the “noncustodial” parent gets the Thanksgiving holiday from Wednesday until Sunday.
Bear in mind this is based on the standard provisions of the Utah Code. Some court orders deviate from the standard schedule. If your court order does so then you should follow what is stated in your order. There are also special rules in place for children under 3 years of age.
