Many parents choose a parenting schedule due to their own work schedules. It would make sense for a parent who works during the week to have custody for the weekends, or a parent who works mostly weekends to parent during the week. When making these decisions, it is important to realize that plans may change. For example, if you remarry, you could end up with ability to stay home with your children. It is necessary to consider that work schedules and financial situations change. It should be understood by both parents that parenting schedules may be modified to accommodate these changes. One way to take changes into consideration is to create an alternate plan that parents can use in certain situations.
