Child Visitation


Even if one parent is granted sole custody, the other parent is still entitled to reasonable visitation rights. The court tends to take the approach that it is in the child's best interest to have both parents involved in his or her life. Visitation schedules determinations are mainly driven by practical considerations of the schedules of all parties involved (custodial parent, non-custodial parent, and child). Visitation rights can be revoked or modified if evidence from the hearing shows that such visitation would seriously endanger the child's physical, mental, moral, or emotional health. If a parent is being denied his or her visitation right as according the parenting agreement or court order, that parent must assert his or her right by filing a petition with the court. After a petition is filed, a hearing will take place on the matter of visitation, and the parenting agreement or order may be modified.
