    Default Parenting Plans

    Hi everyone,

    Its been a long while since I have been on here and since then there have been changes in my life. Unfortunatley our family broke down and I am now heading to mediation with the father of my children.

    I would like to know what living arrangements other people have in place for their children in regards to sharing out time between houses.

    Also how to others deal with Easter and birthdays?

    My children are aged 3, 7 and 9.

    Thank you in advance for any advise you can give me!!

    We live 3 hours apart so he has her every second weekend and also he is allowed to have her for half of the holidays but as he works full time he usually just has her for a week during the year and then a week in Christmas holidays.
    We alternate Christmas, easter we halve so she has 2 days at mine and 2 days at her dads.
    Birthdays are just whoever's weekend is falls on but obviously I get all the birthdays that fall during the week.
    They also skype on Wednesday's every week and the weekend he doesn't have her he calls on the Saturday morning.
    Also he asked to have input in big decisions like school and things like that. That's about it really, we both realize we have to be flexible as kids and just life in general isn't always predictable!
    Good luck with it all!
