Calculation Of Time Share

Category:

The other day I was in Court and this question came up, What is the percentage of time when a child spends one overnight with the other parent during the week? The DissoMaster Time Share Table gives a percentage for two overnights, but not one (I know, take ½ of the two, but the opposition questioned that method).

 

 

In fact, more than once in Court the question of time share has stalled a DissoMaster calculation, delaying the Court case, often times forcing a non-guideline guess as to what a certain period may represent in terms of time share percentage.

 

 

As stated above, the DissoMaster gives a rudimentary time share calculator, but that doesn’t cover several common situations. Below is a more complete time share chart, which can be of help to those falling outside of DissoMaster’s Time Share Table.

Note: A “Standard Weekend” is Friday evening from 5:00 PM to Sunday evening at 5:00 PM. An “Extended Weekend” is Friday afternoon after school until Monday morning when school starts.If your visitation schedule does not conform to one of the above examples, you can always add up the number of hours of visitation per year and divide that number by 8760 (the total number of hours in a year). That will give you the visitation percentage based on your yearly visitation schedule.
