My husband is demanding 50/50 placement immediately after moving out. I don't think that the kids will adapt well to his new involvement. They just received the news about our divorce and I suggested a gradual increase in overnight stays. My daughter is 13 & my son is 10 with Asperger's. My husband wants them 2 days on /2 days off alternating weekends. That is too many transitions during the school week. I was confused trying to keep it strait. I want 60/40 or 70/30 during the school year. Any suggestions on a rotating schedual? Examples? I don't know why this is so hard to figure out. My brain is overloaded with other divorce issues and keeping emotions in check, the simplest of tasks are dumbfounding.

Would your DS's doctor or therapists be willing to write a letter to the judge explaining that this type of arrangement would not be good for your DS? I don't have any experience with this, but I have an ASD child and I know he could not handle this environment. Perhaps if your ex is truly wanting to see the children during the week you could set up meal times with him during the week. I wish you luck.
