Any parent – moms, dads, stepfathers, stepmothers, single moms and single dads alike – will tell you that having a child is one of the greatest joys in life. Every parent also has a unique dynamic and relationship with their kids. The relationship between a single dad and his daughter, for instance, can be complex, scary and also deeply special.

Your little one may not know what Social Security numbers and data protection are, but that, unfortunately, doesn’t reduce their risks of being impersonated by an identity thief. Yes, it’s sad but true: children and even tiny babies are just as vulnerable to identity theft as adults— but until it’s something they can understand, they’ll have no personal control over it. Instead, it’s up to you, their family or guardian, to ensure that the proper precautions are taken against child identity theft.

With the 80-20 split, one of the parents acts as the primary caretaker (at 80% of the time). With this very unequal division of time, your child has a home base at Parent A’s house, rather than at two different homes. This schedule is likely to work best if 1) one parent travels often for work, 2) the two co-parents live far apart, or 3) your child cannot adjust to a constantly changing environment and needs a primary home base. There are 5 main types of 80 20 custody schedules:
With the 70-30 schedule, your child spends 70% of their time with one parent, and 30% with the other. Both parents are still able and want to be involved in their kids’ lives, but the division of time is less equal than in a 50-50 or 60-40 arrangement. The 70 / 30 custody schedule may be best if parents live far apart and need to minimize transitions from one home to another, one parent has a busier work or travel schedule than the other, or their child needs a consistent home base with a “primary” parent. There are 4 common types of 70 30 custody schedules:
As the name implies, 60-40 custody schedules are close to 50-50, but one parent gets a bit more time with the kids than the other. The days are split 3-4, with one parent having the kids for 3 days and the other for 4. There are just two common patterns for 60 / 40 custody agreements: extended weekends and 3-4 alternation.
