Child Visitation Law

Child Visitation

What is Child Visitation Law?

Child visitation is a term that refers to the rights a non-custodial parent has to see his or her child after a divorce or legal separation. Typically, one parent will be awarded physical custody over the child, and the child will live primarily with that parent. The other parent will be granted child visitation rights according to a set schedule and set terms. Each state has different child visitation laws, but a standard arrangement is for the non-custodial parent to have visitation on alternating weekends and holidays.

It is possible to have visitation rights denied by the court if they feel it is not in the best interest of the child. Child visitation rights may be denied if abuse is suspected, if the parent in question cannot properly care for the child, if no safe living arrangements exist, or if the parent fails to meet their child support obligations.
