No. There is no standard or automatic frequency of contact. That said, the court in many cases orders child contact to take place on alternate weekends, to ensure that the children get to spend time with both parents. The pattern of contact will depend on what the best interests of your children are. The practicalities – such as how close the parents are in terms of distance between where they each live and how old the children are – will also need to be considered. If you live close to your ex, then this will increase the likelihood of mid-week contact after school. If you live a long way away, then there might need to be different arrangements put in place.
