Deciding the time frame for your schedule

You need to decide when your summer break schedule will start and when it will stop.

Choose exact calendar dates for your schedule.

Your schedule can go through all or part of summer break.

Use relative dates to describe when your schedule starts and stops.

If your child always gets out of school on the 3rd Friday of June you can have your schedule start the Monday after that.

You can have the same dates for your schedule every year or you can change them. You can also have a different residential schedule during parts of the year that aren't summer break.

Choosing your schedule

You need to choose the residential schedule you want during your time frame. Here are some examples of how to create your summer break schedule.

Swap the parents' time for the summer break schedule.

Here is an alternating weekend schedule where the child lives with the mother and visits the father every other weekend.

In the summer break schedule, the child lives with the father and visits the mother every other weekend.

You can swap any residential schedule for the summer.

Give one parent all of the time during the summer break schedule.

Here is a summer break schedule that goes from July 1st to Aug 1st and all of the time is given to the father.

Create a new residential schedule for the summer break.

For this summer break schedule the parents alternate having the child every two weeks.

You have a lot more options for your residential schedule in the summer because you don't need to plan around school.

You can use a visitation timeshare calculator to give the parent who has less time with the child during the year more time with the summer break schedule.

Use vacation time during the summer.

Instead of creating a different schedule for the summer, you can schedule times when each parent can take the child on vacation.

Here is an every weekend schedule where the child visits the mom on the weekend. The mom is given two weeks of vacation time in July.

You can also have unspecified vacations where each parent is given so many days a year to take a vacation with the child. Parents usually take these in the summer.
