50 50 Child Custody Schedules

January 27th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Whether you have a 50 50 child custody schedule or not, parenting plans should reflect what is in the overall best interest of the children and take into consideration all aspects of the family situation. Each family situation is different and factors such as the age of the minor children, current parenting schedule, relationship the child has with each parent, work schedules, distance between the parent’s homes, among others should be explored. If you’re looking for a parenting plan with a 50 50 child custody schedule below are some example 50 50 child custody schedules for parents that share physical custody on an equal basis.

3-4-4-3 Child Custody Schedule. An example of this 50/50 parenting schedule is where the child is in the care of Parent A from Wednesday through Friday in Week 1 and Wednesday through Saturday in Week 2. The child would be in the care of Parent B from Saturday through Tuesday in Week 1 and Sunday through Tuesday in Week 2.

5-2-2-5 Child Custody Schedule. An example of this 50/50 parenting schedule is where the child is in the care of Parent A every Monday and Tuesday (2 days) and Parent B every Wednesday and Thursday (2 days) each week. The weekend time Friday through Sunday would be alternated (3 days) between the parents. This results in the child being in the care of Parent A for 5 days and Parent B for 2 days in Week 1 and in the care of Parent A for 2 days and Parent B for 5 days in Week 2.

Alternating Weeks Parenting Schedule. This 50/50 parenting schedule is where the child is in the care of Parent A in Week 1 and in the care of Parent B in Week 2. This results in the child living with Parent A for 7 days in Week 1 and with Parent B for 7 days in Week 2.

Sharing Summer and Holidays. It’s not uncommon for the summer vacation time and holidays to be split between the parents. There are many different ways to share the summer time such as alternating weeks, alternating every two weeks, adding a larger block of time for vacation for each parent onto the regular schedule, etc. There are also many different ways holidays can be shared such as splitting the holiday time or alternating each year between parents. For example, the child can spend an agreed upon holiday with Parent A in even years and Parent B in odd years or visa versa.

The above are just examples of some common 50 50 child custody schedules which can be altered and adjusted in many different ways to accommodate what’s best for the children, family situation and arrangements that are not an exact 50% timeshare split.
