After a divorce, it is in the child's best interests to have a relationship with both parents. This means both parents must be granted time with the children. Judges strive to give parents this time through visitation arrangements.

Visitation Schedules and Child Visitation Rights

The court will seek to provide a schedule of visitation for the family that provides regular and routine time with both parents and the children. In many cases, this involves alternating weekends and holidays. The goal is to provide a predictable schedule for the children and a sense of normalcy.


Changes in a family's lifestyle or living situation can require that the visitation plan be revised. This could include a relocation of one of the parents or a change in a job situation that impacts the parent's ability to keep the current visitation schedule.

In such cases, the parent can file a petition for modification to the visitation schedule.
