    FMLA. Google it.

    and take off every minute you can afford to take off. I was a stay at home dad, that is some time that I would not trade for anything.

    Dang. I was hoping for a Maury moment. I think it's 8 weeks. It's FMLA.

    Its FMLA and each state is different. Where I'm at its 8 weeks if you take time off before the baby is born, and 12 weeks if youtake off after the baby is born. I believe some states you must take vacation time if you have it left.

    Invest in some children's books. In a few years your child can read them to you!

    12 weeks...I was able to take 1 week as paternity after birth of child. Followed by an additional 11 weeks under FMLA prior to the childs first birthday. All vacation/option days were paid out for FMLA with the the option to save 1 week as vacation. Your area may differ.

    I was curious when you said that. So I checked.

    Now I have to wonder how this thread would have gone if they chose taciturnity.

    Contract Article 16 Section 4 covers Paternity Leave; Section 6 covers FMLA.
