Parent 1 having the child Monday evening till Friday evening.

Parent 2 having the child Friday evening till Monday morning. 

Do you consider this Shared Custody? Its obvioulsy not 50/50 but 60/40?

Yeah, it's shared custody. If not he would only get them every other weekend.

Its close to 60/40 but I don't think "shared" custody is necessarily a complete 50/50 split. It just means that both parents have joint custody of the child vs one parent having custody of the child.

I think it's shared custody. You both spend a lot of time with the kids.

I thought shared custody was 50/50... as in one week on, one week off, etc.

It could easily be 50/50 if the 40 parent had extra for holiday breaks-

It's shared custody.  The amount of time spent with each parent however and the costs of the children (ie, housing costs, child care, etc...) and parental income will determine if either parent will be required to pay CS to the other.  If the 60% parent makes more, even though they have the child(ren) more, they could be COd to pay support to the 40% parent.

Shared or joint custody could be even when one parent had the kids eowe. It just depends in the wording on the CO. It means both parents have decision rights to the kids

In court the law itself, told my husband and I, that though I get my kids 4 days a week, and he gets them 3 days a week: we have 50\50 shared custody.

So, yes it is!

Quoting Callaly:

Parent 1 having the child Monday evening till Friday evening.


Parent 2 having the child Friday evening till Monday morning.
