My wife and I are separated and have signed a separation agreement stating we will have joint custody of the children which is defined as 50/50 in our agreement. My wife works a non-traditional schedule which I have worked with her on every occasion. However, due to her schedule I end up watching the children 60% of the time on average. I have never complained about this to my wife because I want to be with my children. However, there have been a few times I feel like my wife takes me for granted when it comes to watching the kids. To avoid unnecessary tension, I would love to have a set schedule with the kids but with my wife’s work schedule I don’t see this ever being a possibility. I have suggested it to her and she saids she will try.
So my question is how are custody schedules typically handled when one parent has a non traditional work schedule or if one spouse is not putting in 50% as agreed.
