Neither of us wants primary custody of the kids.I wanted to do 50/50 ,but my.ex only wants weekend visits.I.wanted this arrangement because of.my job.How does this work? Can.a judge order custody be 50/50'anyways.The only way I could have primary custody and still do my job would be if I had a live in care provider.I can't afford one,could the court order him to pay at least half?

Take primary cust, then have him pay 1/2 the childcare (req'd in most states-on TOP of child support).

Did you both have these jobs when you were married?  How did you work around your schedules then?

In Maryland joint custody is 49/51...one person always has he kids more.  I think that going from house to house during the week is too much and the traditional every other weekend is much better.  I guess you better figure out what you are going to do...and smh at "neither of us wants primary custody"  Poor kids.

Congratulations on being the most backwards divorced parents on the planet.

As a parent, isn't it the unspoken rule to figure it out??? How must your kids feel knowing that neither parent wants primary custody?

Well, someone has to have them...they can order 50/50 custody....They could also order primary placement and child  support.   I would quickly formulate a new plan.  How old are the kids.
