A reasonable visitation schedule allows the children regular and ongoing interaction with both parents. The state of Texas recognizes that this is necessary for children, so whenever possible, a visitation plan or parenting time agreement should make sure both parents are able to spend plenty of time with their kids.

That said, every family and situation is different, and what one family finds to be a good and accommodating visitation plan, might not work at all for your family. The priority is settling on something reasonable and working with your former spouse to create the best joint custody schedule for your family’s needs. When both parents are a part of creating it, you’re both a lot more likely to understand the other parent’s needs – and you’re more likely to want to stick to the plan. Call Laura D.

What’s The Most Common Visitation Plans?

Many parents say that the best visitation plan is the 2-2-3 parenting schedule, the 50-50 parenting schedule, or something else entirely. That said,  it doesn’t matter what other parents think. When it comes to schedules, the only thing that matters is what’s the best custody arrangement for your child.

Some children might prefer the 2-2-3 parenting schedule, or maybe the week-on, week-off joint custody schedule. The bottom line is that every single family is different and evolving, so every visitation plan should also look a little different. Reach out to a family lawyer in San Antonio today
