Child Visitation Schedule Template

Are you looking for a child visitation schedule template? Here is a basic one to get you started.

The Repeating Cycle of Custody and Visitation

  • Get a blank calendar that has 2-4 weeks.
  • Fill out the basic cycle of custody and visitation.
  • When you have the basic cycle, count the number of weeks.
  • Repeat the weeks of the cycle throughout the calendar year.

A Holiday Schedule

  • Make a list of the holidays you want to include.
  • Decide how you will share the holidays–by splitting the time or alternating the holidays.
  • Assign the holiday time to each parent.
  • Pick a method for how you will figure out holidays each year (alternating the schedule every year, making a new one, etc)

Vacation Time

  • Decide if you want a different schedule of custody and visitation during the child’s vacations and breaks from school.
  • Make a different schedule for vacation time if you want.
  • Decide how many days each parent has to take the children on vacation each year.
  • Assign the dates of the vacation, or allow parents to have unspecified vacations (this means that parents can have so many days with the children for vacation and they can pick the dates later).

Special Events

  • Look at the calendar to see if your child has any special events that will change the custody schedule (like sporting events, concerts, etc.)
  • Reassign the custody as necessary.

Custody X Change is custody software that provides the best visitation schedule template available. With the software, parents can make all of these parts of the visitation schedule, see the exact timeshare percentage that each parent has with the children while setting up the schedule, and explore many different options for the schedule. You can download the free edition of the software and make your visitation schedule today.

    Passed with flying colors

    I can't thank you enough for the software. The Parenting Plan passed with flying colors in the courts and with my ex. Now the best part is that I am using the deluxe edition to adjust and record my times. Thanks again.

    Gave me a clear picture

    Without this software, I would have signed the proposed agreement and found out about the problems and conflicts only after it was too late. Custody X Change took the raw data I had stared at for days, and in a few minutes, gave me a crystal clear picture of the resulting schedule. Custody X Change is a must-have resource for parents and attorneys working with visitation issues.
