Four Types of Child Custody Schedules a Nevada Court May Order

Child custody schedules reno family lawyers

Your family’s custody schedule is a crucial aspect of the child custody process in Nevada. In any given child custody matter, the court will order who will care for the child. This is done with parenting plans and custody schedules. These schedules vary from case to case and are customized to the family’s needs and wishes. Choosing which type of custody schedule works best for you and your child can be overwhelming. However, there are four common schedules that a parent can reference during their custody process. In this blog, we explain what those common four schedules are. 

1. 50/50 Custody Schedule

A 50/50 custody schedule is a joint custody schedule where each parent shares an equal amount of time with their child. Some examples of this type of custody schedule are:

  • Monday at 4:00 pm – Thursday at 4:00 pm with Parent #1 and Thursday at 4:00 pm – Monday at 4:00 pm with Parent #2.
  • Alternating weeks with Parent #1 and Parent #2.
  • Alternating two weeks with Parent #1 and Parent #2.

2. 60/40 Custody Schedule

In a 60/40 custody schedule, the child will spend 60% of their time with one parent and 40% of their time with the other parent. An example of this type of custody schedule is:

  • Weekdays with a parent with 60% custody and weekends with a parent with 40% custody.
    • Monday at 4:00 pm – Friday at 4:00 pm with a parent with 60% custody and Friday at 4:00 pm – Monday at 4:00 pm with a parent with 40% custody.

3. 70/30 Custody Schedule

A 70/30 custody schedule consists of the child spending 70% of their time with one parent and 30% of their time with the other parent. Some examples of this type of custody schedule are:

  • Weekdays with a parent with 70% custody and weekends with a parent with 30% custody.
  • Alternating weekends with a parent who has 30% custody.

4. Summer Break 

Summer break custody schedules tend to work best for parents who live far away from each other. In this example, one parent cannot conveniently share custody of their child throughout the school year. Other instances of this type of custody schedule include:

  • The child spends the whole summer with one parent.
  • The child spends a few weeks of the summer with one parent.
  • The child alternates weeks in the summer with each parent.

Ultimately, custody schedules are determined based on a wide range of factors including the type of custody ordered by the judge (joint versus primary), the distance between the parent’s homes, the child’s age, and the parent’s schedules and preferences. Figuring out what type of custody schedule works best for you and how to work to get the court to grant you the schedule can be a difficult undertaking.
