Jesse Williams has been awarded overnight visits with his two children — Sadie, 3, and Maceo, 2 — according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE.

From Oct 1. to December 31., Williams will “have custody of the minor children on the first, third and fourth weekends of each months from Saturday at 8:30 a.m. until Sunday at 8:30 a.m,” according to the documents filed Nov. 9.

Additionally, Williams will be permitted to have custody of the kids up to two times a week after they get out from school until 6:15 p.m., except for one day when he will have custody from after school until “the following day when school commences for each child.”

Williams will also be granted additional custody “twice each month … on the Friday immediately preceding” his normal weekend custodial duties, so he can have “two consecutive overnights” with his children. While the documents clearly state it’s up to Williams to decide which Fridays he will spend with his children, he cannot choose a Friday directly preceding his ex’s custodial time with the children or a Friday when he will be on the set of Grey’s Anatomy.

And although this Thanksgiving does not fall on one of Williams’ normal days with his kids, the court documents state that he will have custody of the children for the holiday “in odd numbered years commencing in the year 2017.”

While the couple has not yet made plans for all future Christmases, this year Williams will have custody from Dec 24 at 10 a.m. to Dec. 25 at 10 a.m.

Williams and his estranged wife Aryn Drake-Lee were granted joint legal custody of their two children Aug. 30. The former couple filed for divorce in April after five years of marriage.

“Aryn is pleased to have an arrangement that will provide stability and continuity for the children so that their best interests are the highest priority,” Drake-Lee’s attorney Jill Hersh said in a statement to PEOPLE.

Williams is now dating actress Minka Kelly.
