Two weeks each custody schedule

The two weeks each child custody schedule is a great and simple schedule for 50/50 custody. One parent has the child for two weeks, and then the other parent has the child for two weeks.

This schedule is particularly good for parents of teenagers or older children. These kids are usually busier because of school, extracurricular activities and friends. They want to spend time with both parents but usually want a schedule that doesn't interfere with their lives.

It's also a great summer schedule for parents who live farther away from each other and can't share custody 50/50 during the school year. This way, the children can spend longer quality time with mom and dad when school is out.

The biggest drawback of this schedule is the length of time children spend away from parents. It's not ideal for an infant or small toddler who still needs a primary residence. To help, allow your child to call the other parent when they miss them, or arrange mid-week meals with the other parent.

3-4-4-3 custody schedule

The 3-4-4-3 child custody schedule is great for those who want a very consistent schedule. Your child spends the first three nights of the week with one parent and the second four nights of the week with the other. Then, the following week, they stay four nights with the first parent and three with the second.

This schedule is easy to implement. One parent always has the first part of the week, and the other parent always has the end of the week, including the weekend. Only the day for the midweek exchange switches.

The big downfall of this schedule is that one parent has every weekend. This is not always a bad thing, depending on your schedules. Remember that the best schedule for you is the one that's best for your child.

The easiest way to make a 50/50 custody schedule

Creating a schedule on your own can feel overwhelming. You have to be sure to use airtight legal language and can't omit any required information.

The Custody X Change app takes the guesswork out of the equation by helping you build a schedule piece by piece.

As a result, you get a written schedule and a visual calendar. They meet your family's needs, as well as the court's standards.
