Legal Question in Family Law in Minnesota

Since Christmas Eve and Christmas Day fall on the weekend this year, my former spouse is using the fact that it is his visitation weekend to take my son on Christmas Eve therefore giving me no time to spend with him. Which legally comes first...the holiday or weekend visitation?

You should review you parenting plan, but I would think holiday(s) would trump the normal schedule.

A review of your order would be required. However, under most normal circumstances, the holiday schedule would take precedence over the weekly schedule.
