Split custody

Split custody generally refers to a situation when both parents have equal possession time of the child(ren). Parties may agree to a 50/50 possession schedule; however, there is a presumption that there will be one parent to designate the primary residence and the other parent will visit the child(ren) per a Standard Possession Order. If the child issues are submitted to a judge, the judge is not likely to award a split custody possession schedule.
