Quoting XXanonymousXX: My DH has 50/50. BM has always been 10 minutes or less away.
For us, one parent gets Mon & Tues, the other Wed & Thurs, and then EOW.
DH is the residential parent, for school enrollment and such, as we own and are going to be here a while but BM rents and moves pretty frequently.
They split the cost of health insurance monthly. On that monthly check they also reimburse eachother for shared expenses like school costs, EC's, if they share any childcare (like they will this summer), medical/dental over and above what insurance covers. Basically everything except day to day or household specific stuff like clothes.
It's really been great for SD. She has two involved parents, she doesn't see either as the "primary".
But I recommend an official agreement filed with the court detailing the schedule, the financial agreement, that both parents make joint medical decisions, etc. It will make everything run alot smoother than just deviating from an existing visitation schedule.
DH and BM switch every Friday at 5pm. From what my DH told me, there is a certain number of overnights that determines CS or not, here. Neither BM or DH pay CS since they have the same amount of time (give or take a few for split holidays and such).
