There are several breakdowns of how to divide time in a 70/30 arrangement. The most common is the weekend schedule, where a child is with one parent during the week and the other parent on the weekends.

 

This schedule will consist of two Repeating Event Series; one for Parent A and one for Parent B.

 

Follow the steps below to create the Weekend Split AKA 70/30 Schedule using the website:

 

  1. From the Calendar section of your account, select the green "+" icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen
  2. Select the "Category Color" (This step is optional but useful for customizing events on the calendar. Please note: your co-parent will not be able to see the colors you have chosen for your events)
  3. Enter the "Event Name" (ex: Parent A)
  4. Under "Event Details", enter any notes regarding the event (optional)
  5. Select a "Start Date" (ex: First day of Parent A's Event Series)
  6. Select an "End Date" (ex: Last day of Parent A's Event Series)
  7. Select a "Start Time" and an "End Time"
  8. Toggle "Repeat this event?" and enter how often this event repeats (for this schedule, select "Weekly")
  9. From the drop-down under "Repeats every", select "Week"
  10. Under "Stop Repeating Event", select "Never" (or you can enter a date that the event stops repeating by clicking "On date" and entering a specific date)
  11. Click "Create Event"

 

 

Example - website view:

In the example below, Parent B has their event set to repeat every weekend, and Parent A's event is set to repeat every week during the weekdays.
