2 Weeks Each: Custody & Visitation Schedule Examples
The 2 weeks each schedule is a 50/50 residential schedule. Your child spends 2 weeks with one parent and then 2 weeks with the other parent and this repeats.
Here's the 2 weeks each schedule in the calendar.
Custody X Change is software that creates custody schedules and professional parenting plan documents.
Here are some ways to customize the 2 week schedule so it fits better for your child and you.
You can pick any day or time for the exchange. Here is the exchange on a Sunday evening.
You can add a visit in the week to the other parent. Here is a visit on Wednesday evening.
You can add an overnight visit in the week to the other parent. Here is an overnight visit on Tuesday.
If you want, you can mark 3rd party time in your schedule when your child isn't with either parent--like when the child is in daycare or in school.
You may want to use a visitation timeshare calculator as you make changes so you know that each parent still has equal time with the child.
- The parents and child have a more stable, structured environment and schedule
- There aren't many exchanges in the month
- Parents can limit contact with each other because of the infrequent exchanges
- This can work for higher conflict situations
- Parents can live further apart and still share a 50/50 custody schedule
- Since there is equal parenting time there may be less conflict over the schedule
- You can add midweek or overnight visits to customize the schedule
- The child lives with each parent for a long period of time
- Both parents have opportunities to provide daily care to the children
- Some parents and/or children struggle being away from each other for 2 weeks
- Parents with school aged children must both live close to the school
- This is a shared parenting arrangement and both parents must cooperate and communicate about the child
- The parents must keep each other updated on what is going on in school or other extra activities
- The child must adapt to living in two different homes
