[QUOTE=Canadaguy;146204]Do not go for less than 50/50, you owe that to your child. Your child has two parents, not one. Your child should be allowed to see each parent equally.[quote]

I agree 100%.

This is effectively known as the "2-2-5-5" schedule more can be found here in more detail:

This is known as the standard week about schedule.

I would stick with the 2-2-5-5 as it is the most consistent schedule in a 50-5 sitution. Although CanadaGuy, do you have sources for these schedules you can cite? Very interesting patterns and wondering if there was clinical research backing etc...

The other schedule to consider (depending if the children are less than 5 years old) is a 2-2-3 schedule.

Week 1

Mon-Tue with Mother
Wed-Thurs with Father
Fri-Saty-Sun with Mother

Week 2
Mon-Tue with Father
Wed-Thurs with Mother
Fri-Sat-Sun With Father

-- Start again in the Week 1 rotation

I only recommend this when children are less than 5 years of age. I recommend 2-2-5-5 when children are older (or able to manage) as the consistency of knowing that every Mon-Tue they are with one parent and Wed-Thur they are with the other with there being 5 day rotations too that cover this to insure long-weekends can be enjoyed etc. 2-2-5-5 is really better for scheduling music, swimming and other individual activities on you-time without having to get agreement from the other parent that they will take the kids to the activity.

Good Luck!
