Your custody schedule should contain the following parts:
Residential or school schedule: this is the everyday schedule of where your child spends time. This is also called the repeating cycle of custody and visitation because schedules often repeat on a weekly or biweekly basis.
Holiday schedule: this schedule shows which parent your child will be with on the holidays. You can split each holiday time in half, or you can rotate visitation every other year.
Vacation or school break schedule: sometimes the everyday schedule changes when the child is on school break or vacation and a separate everyday schedule is needed. You can also schedule vacation time when each parent takes the children on vacation. This should be worked out in a way that is fair to both parents.
Extra or special events: these are the one-time changes to the custody schedule because of extra or special events that arise. These can include things like doctor's appointment and other unpredicted schedule changes.
