According to my custody order, my ex is supposed to have his summer vacation dates to me by March 15. (He gets 2 weeks of his choosing, plus the 2nd week of June, July and August) If they were full weeks, it wouldn't be as big of a problem - but he chooses 2 days here, 3 days there, etc. for a total of 14 days.
I gave him my 2 weeks of vacation (bundled as weeks) several weeks ago. He did not turn his in by the date - nor has he ever any of the last 3 years. Does anyone know if there is an implied "punishment" if the order isn't followed. Obviously contempt is an option, but does he just lose his vacation altogether? What if he comes up the week before spring break and tells me he wants his vacation - it's after the date, can I tell him no? (Because obviously I can't wait until the last minute to make plans)
This is somewhat a vent, but I am looking for suggestions on how to handle this too. Thanks! (We have 3 kids - 15 yo (with autism), 13 yo and 11 yo and then I have 2 more with my husband, they are 4 yo and 2 yo.)

If it is written in a custody order that way. That he has a due date to get it to you. You can probably denie his request. At least that is how I see it.
I would tell him he will get the kids 2 weeks straight. Sense he did not get it to you in time.
