Parenting Time Calculator
The Parenting Time Calculator is a tool for families and child support professionals to find out the average time a child is spending with each parent and to help create a parenting plan. If there is a provision for parenting time included in your child support order the result may be applied to how much money each parent should contribute for the care of their child using the Child Support Guidelines Calculator.
Things to know about the Parenting Time Calculator:
Parenting time is based on the number of overnights the child typically spends with each parent for 365 days (or 366 during a leap year).
The Parenting Time Calculator is set up to cover a two-year cycle.
Weekends, holidays, and spring break are automatically populated based on general selections made at the beginning of the calculation.
If a holiday or vacation day overlaps any regular weekend parenting time, the calculator will reflect the holiday or vacation time.
The parenting plan may be adjusted by hand by selecting or un-selecting specific dates.
Unknown or non-specific periods of time cannot be included in the calculation.
