In this forum, we all mostly agree that overnights are the appropriate way to determine if the shared custody threshold has been reached.

Judges though, often go by hours, and often allocate school hours to the "primary" parent.

My brief calculation shows that the current schedule gives Dad about 41% of the time with the kids. (I estimate about 138 hours out of 336 hours every two weeks, depending on when school starts) That is perilously close to the 40% threshold. What is the current child support arrangement? Unless you already pay some form of offset, expect some serious resistance to change, from both mom and the courts.

Don't let court scare you. Your schedule is crazy. As others have said, explain to a judge why it is bad for the kids and you should be successful.
