August is considered a "vacation" month. During this time, a parent that has custody of the children during "summer vacation" typically has the children. Yet August can be tricky, because it is often the month where children start school. As a result, parent need to be extremely cautious to follow all custody guidelines for the month of august.
If you fail to do so, you could end up in court for violating an agreement. According to state law, it is illegal to take children out of the state without an agreement or a court order. Even during August, you need to get an agreement before taking your children across state lines for a vacation, visit, competition, or any other intended reason for travel.
Unless you have an agreement put in place, you may violate an automatic court order. This may result in the requirement to pay fines, or you may be forced to pay higher spousal support or child support. Instead, if you need to take your children across state lines you will be required to get a written agreement submitted to the court.
You can also seek court permission by making an appointment. Either way, you will want an attorney to assist you in your case.
