“2:2:5:5”   Joint Physical Custody For Older Children

The parties alternate two and five day periods with the children. Each parent has two consecutive
midweek overnights each week and alternate the weekends.

Sample Language:

A.        In Week 1, commencing ________, Parent A shall have physical custody of the minor child(ren)
each week from Monday, at the start of school/child care/camp (or at 8:00 a.m. if the child(ren) are not
in school/child care/camp), when Parent B shall drop the minor child(ren) off at school/child care/camp,
or at Parent A’s residence if the child(ren) are not in school/child care/camp, until Wednesday, at the
start of school/child care/camp (or at 8:00 a.m. if the child(ren) are not in school/child care/camp), when
Parent A shall drop the minor child(ren) off at school/child care/camp or at Parent B’s residence if the
child(ren) are not in school/child care/camp.
B.        In Week 1 and 2, commencing ________, Parent A shall have physical custody of the minor child
(ren) on Friday, after the end of school/child care/camp (or at 5:30 p.m. if the child(ren) are not in
school/child care/camp), when Parent A shall pick up the child(ren) from school/child care/camps, or at
Parent B’s residence if the child(ren) are not in school/child care, until the following Wednesday, at the
start of school/child care (or at 8:00 a.m. if the child(ren) are not in school/child care/camp), when
Parent A shall drop the minor child(ren) off at school/child care/camp or at Parent B’s residence if the
child(ren) are not in school/child care/camp:
C.         After the conclusion of Week 2, the two week rotation shall commence again with the physical
custody schedule set forth above for Week 1.
B.        Parent B shall have custody of the children at all times not designated as  Parent A’s time.

Comments:

The works better for well adjusted children who have a good attachment to both parents. It allows for
joint physical custody but each child is only away from the non-custodial parent for five days.
