What is Visitation?

Visitation typically refers to the right of a non-custodial parent or another individual to spend time with a childĀ in the custody of another person, usually the child's other parent. Visitation rights are established either by agreement between the parents or through a court order.

Here are some common types:

  • Scheduled Visitation: This is perhaps the most common type of visitation arrangement, where specific days and times are outlined for the non-custodial parent to spend time with the child. This could include weekends, weekdays, or holidays.
  • Unsupervised Visitation: In unsupervised visitation, the non-custodial parent has the right to spend time with the child without supervision by a third party. This is typical when there are no concerns about the safety or well-being of the child during visits.
  • Supervised Visitation: When there are concerns about the safety or well-being of the child during visits, the court may order supervised visitation. This means that visits are supervised by a third party, such as a social worker or family member, to ensure the child's safety.
  • Neutral Location Visitation: Sometimes, visitation may occur at a neutral location rather than in the home of either parent. This can be useful if there is conflict between the parents or if one parent's home is deemed unsuitable for visitation.
  • Virtual Visitation: With advancements in technology, virtual visitation has become more common. This allows the non-custodial parent to have contact with the child via video calls, emails, or other forms of electronic communication when physical visits are not possible.
  • Therapeutic Visitation: In cases where there are significant issues affecting the parent-child relationship, therapeutic visitation may be ordered. This involves visits that are facilitated by a trained therapist to address and improve the relationship between the parent and child.
  • Extended Visitation: Extended visitation arrangements may be made for school breaks, vacations, or other extended periods of time when the non-custodial parent has the opportunity to spend more time with the child.

California family law emphasizes the importance of ensuring that visitation arrangements serve the best interests of the child involved. This means that courts will consider factors such as the child's age, relationship with each parent, and any history of abuse or neglect when determining visitation rights.

In cases where parents are unable to agree on visitation arrangements, the court may intervene and issue a visitation order outlining the specific terms and conditions of visitation. These orders are legally binding and must be followed by both parents unless modified by the court.

We Represent Parents Needing Help with Visitation Issues

If one parent gains sole custody of a child, the court will require a visitation plan to be put in place. This allows for the other parent to have time with their children on a scheduled basis. In most cases, the court strives to give the child as much time as possible with both parents. Having a legal advocate on your side throughout this process can be extremely beneficial.

Some of the issues our firm can assist with include:

  • Crafting a visitation plan
  • Contesting an unfair or unfavorable plan
  • Requesting a modification of a plan
  • Enforcing a visitation plan

Child custody and visitation matters can be heated topics for parents who both want to share in the upbringing of their children. We can help to inform you of all your legal options and create a solid case on your behalf when necessary. Our firm is dedicated to helping parents stay involved in their children’s lives and would be more than happy to assist you in any way we can.
