Legal term is share custody. If you google it, it will tell you 4 days and 3 nights, 3 days and 2 nights, in other words 60/40, not really 50%. If you are going to be the primary caregiver, you will keep the child 60% of the time.
However, there are a lot of more way to do this kind of share custody. Yet, if you both can agree on it, the judge will decide.
I keep the children monday- friday, they go with their dad or grandparents friday night till Monday morning (grandparents drop them off at school). It is the every week schedule. Grandparents also keep them on holidays. We have very good communication, so we adjust our schedule if anyone needs extra day or weekend.
