Shared Physical Care – Parenting Time Schedules

In Iowa (and to a lesser extent South Dakota and Nebraska), shared physical care is becoming more and more common. Shared physical care parenting time schedules vary from family to family.  One of the more common schedules involves the children rotating between the parents homes on a weekly basis (with the opposite parent having one evening of mid-week visitation). Other common schedules are as follows:

5/5/2/2 Shared Physical Care Parenting Schedule

************SUN        MON      TUES      WED     THURS     FRI        SAT
WEEK 1         MOM      MOM      MOM      DAD     DAD          DAD       DAD
WEEK 2        DAD        MOM      MOM      DAD     DAD          MOM     MOM
WEEK 3        MOM      MOM      MOM      DAD     DAD          DAD       DAD
WEEK 4        DAD        MOM      MOM      DAD     DAD          MOM     MOM

2/2/3 Shared Physical Care Parenting Schedule

**********SUN         MON      TUES       WED       THURS     FRI         SAT
WEEK 1     MOM       DAD        DAD        MOM      MOM        DAD       DAD
WEEK 2    DAD         MOM      MOM      DAD        DAD          MOM     MOM
WEEK 3    MOM       DAD        DAD        MOM      MOM        DAD       DAD
WEEK 4    DAD        MOM       MOM      DAD        DAD          MOM     MOM

Another variation of this schedule is for MOM and DAD to each have the same weekdays each week. For example, DAD would always have Monday and Tuesday and MOM would always have Wednesday and Thursday – only Friday Saturday and Sunday would rotate.

3/4/4/3 Shared Physical Care Parenting Schedule

***********SUN        MON      TUES      WED     THURS     FRI         SAT
WEEK 1     MOM       MOM      MOM     DAD       DAD          DAD       DAD
WEEK 2    MOM        MOM      MOM     MOM     DAD          DAD       DAD
WEEK 3    MOM        MOM      MOM     DAD       DAD          DAD       DAD
WEEK 4    MOM        MOM      MOM     MOM     DAD          DAD       DAD

Another less frequently used parenting plan involves rotating the children every two days.
