Currently, due to him wanting me to have more child support, my ex and I agreed on 40/60 custody. I have them 60 percent (not sure if that is true down to exact hours) anyway. I have them Wednesday afternoon (12) to Sunday noon. He has them the other days. I don't have any weekends child free. I would like to move toward a more fifty fifty split but worry about the effect on the kids etc. In addition, during the school year I have two of my kids every morning (they catch the bus from my place of work and have one of them every afternoon after school. The reason mainly is I am dating a wonderful man who is also divorced. He has his child custody split one week on one week off with each parent having a whole weekend to themselves. When I have asked for a weekend off it has been met with I can't. I am figuring if I had the weekend already off I wouldn't have to make other arrangements other than swapping weekends if necessary. I guess what I am really asking advice about it whether I should rock the boat or just leave it as is. I am so confused. My kids are fifteen, thriteen and seven. The fifteen year old is almost to the point she just wants to live with me anyway.
