In level of love for holidays, behind Christmas comes either Halloween or Thanksgiving.
I’m more of a Thanksgiving guy, but we have a lot of clients who love Halloween.
They go all out with costumes and candy. It’s a big deal.
So, how does parent-time work on Halloween for divorced Utah parents?
Here is the schedule from the Utah law that talks about parent-time and holidays:
“Halloween on October 31 or the day Halloween is traditionally celebrated in the local community from after school until 9 p.m. if on a school day, or from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m.”
So, the Halloween holiday is usually on October 31, but it could be on another day. Usually, the “other day” comes in to effect if Halloween happens on a Sunday.
Many Utah communities will celebrate Halloween on Saturday, October 30, if October 31 falls on a Sunday.
It’s quirky, I know, but you have to see how the city where your kid lives does things.
The other part of the law is pretty straightforward. If there’s school on Halloween, the holiday is from after school until 9 p.m.
If there is no school, then the holiday is from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m.
There you go. Now, go have fun.
