Long Distance Visitation onebabylove Due March 24; South Carolina 378 posts

I have posted several times on here about long distance visitation and it is looking like the ex and I can work it out. Buuuuutttt... I need help on figuring out how to do the visitation. Like, what is a good schedule? We will be roughly 1700 miles apart so I will be flying my child back to her dad. Any ideas for schedules? I want to be fair as possible!

My friend recently moved out of state with her 3 year old daughter and she spends an average of 1 week a month with her dad.

Yeah, that's not going to be possible in my situation. 1700 miles is a loooong way!

I have a friend that spent 6 months with one parent and 6 months with the other parent. I have no idea if that is possible for you guys but it seemed to work for his parents.

1 week per month or 2 weeks every 3 months consecutive, plus shared holidays (you have Thanksgiving and he has Christmas one year, switched for the next).



Once school starts, all school holidays, shared holidays and 1/2 the summer.

I don't understand? A week would be easier than every other weekend. My friend moved 1400 miles away. They spend a lot on airfare though because either my friend or her husband fly with her here then fly back until the week ends and she goes back home...so basically it's 3 round trip tickets a month for them.

For me I was born and raised in California and then one parent moved to missouri. I stayed in California for the school year and every summer for the entire vacation I went to Missouri to visit the other parent. It was hard on me and both my parents but I think it was the most cost effective for both parents. I started flying alone at 7 with the stewardess helping me to my gate.

My cousin and his ex girlfriend live far apart and they each do like 3 months with their daughter then drive her to the other. I don't know what they are going to do when she goes to school
