There are many different parenting time schedules depending on the age of the children, needs of the children, availability of the parents, distance between the parents’ residences, and many other factors. There is no right or wrong way to design a parenting time schedule. Parenting time schedules may reflect any of the following, and then various other forms: week-on week-off; two days on, three days off, two days on; four days on, three days off, every other weekend; four day weekends; one week per month; two weeks every other month, etc. Some orders regarding parenting time merely state, “reasonable parenting time as agreed upon between the parties,” which allows the parents to be flexible with one another in scheduling parenting time. Other parenting time schedules are more specific, including days, times, and or specific places for parenting time exchanges.
Choosing and sticking to the parenting time schedule that is right for you and your family can be difficult, but it is necessary. Not only is it important that you obey the rules of the court, having a set schedule is also helpful for the stability of your children. Divorce is already a difficult thing for children to have to cope with without the added stress of having to cope with a confusing or always changing parenting schedule. Having the court and a skilled parenting time attorney help you make these schedules can make this aspect of separations and divorces easier for everyone. As all aspects of family law can be confusing, hiring a attorney who is skilled in family law is imperative.
