2. An additional visit must be:

(a) Of the same type and duration as the wrongfully denied visit;

(b) Taken within 1 year after the wrongfully denied visit; and

(c) At a time chosen by the noncustodial parent.

3. The noncustodial parent must give the court and the custodial parent written notice of his intention to make the additional visit at least 7 days before the proposed visit if it is to be on a weekday or weekend and at least 30 days before the proposed visit if it is to be on a holiday or vacation.
