We switch every other week, I granted him 50/50 custody. Our daughter is 9 now, we've done the 50/50 split since divorcing when she was close to 2. I ask for no child support because of the equal time, it doesn't seem fair to me. ETA: My ex and I get along REALLY well, we aren't "normal" from what I've heard lol. This is probably why I'm so lenient and easy going with his visitation.
Quoting rollin3kidsdeep:Every other week. She's six. Before anyone asks, I voluntarily gave him this. He's a great dad, just wasn't a great husband. I didn't think she should be punished for our marriage failing.
We were split for a year and he took them every weekend. They were 1 and 2 at the time.
Well my husband and I are together but we have SD 50/50 we actually get to see her more then BM though since BM has to be to work so early she drops SD off at our house at 6 on her nights and my husband picks her up from school during the yr and takes her back to work with him and during the summer his mom watches her so he picks her up from her house everyday. So we see her every day except on BM weekends. Which is AWESOME. If we did split up I would make sure that CS wont be paid (legally he will still have to but I will give him that money right back as we make the same amount of money and neither can afford CS) and that he would have 50/50 custody of our son. I think it is highly important for kids to be with both parents 50/50.
One week he has our son Wednesday evening - Monday afternoon, the next week Wednesday evening - Friday afternoon. Nothing is set in stone though, we have a good co-parenting relationship, sometimes he has things to do, or I have things to do, or he has things to do with our son, or vice-versa. We just swap things around as needed. We don't go by what a piece of paper says. ETA our son is 4
