Alternating Weeks

In this schedule, the parents simply alternate weeks with the children. You can choose what day to switch, and you can also alternate every two weeks.

Alternating Weeks with Mid-Week Visits

This schedule is the same as above, but each parent has a visit sometime during the week. The visit can be an overnight visit (shown) or an evening visit. The parents can also schedule multiple visits.

2-2-3 Parenting Time Schedule

In this schedule, one parent has the children for 2 days, the other parent then has the child for 2 days, and then the child goes back to the first parent for 3 days. The schedule keeps rotating, and the child goes to the second parent for 2 days, the first parent for 2 days, and the second parent for 3 days.

3-3-4-4 Schedule

In this schedule, the first parent has the children for 3 days, the second parent has the children for 3 days, the first parent has the children for 4 days and the second parent then has the children for 4 days. It basically splits the week in half.

2-2-5-5 Schedule

This is a similar schedule to the one above, except the rotation is 2-2-5-5. So, the first parent has the children 2 days, the second parent has the children 2 days, the first parent has the children 5 days, and the second parent has the children 5 days. The schedule can be started any day of the week so the parents have different days.
