What are the most common types of living arrangements for children post-divorce?

Parenting plans are designed to accommodate a specific family so it may or may not be 50/50 which would mean equal time. It may be every other weekend, and depends on the parties and the needs of the children.

If the parties agree to live in close proximity to each other and each is able to provide the care to the children on a day-to-day basis, and both parents are involved parents, then an equal parenting plan may be appropriate. However, if the parties don't reside in close proximity to each other, then a weekend parenting plan may be more appropriate. Each plan needs to be designed specifically for the family.
