Visitation Rights

In situations where one parent has sole physical custody, the non-custodial parent may have the right to a certain amount of visitation time. The separating spouses may choose to agree on visitation time independently of the court. If a decision cannot be reached, however, the court may be able to order visitation. Visitation is determined on a case-by-case basis after the court has carefully assessed your situation.

In some cases, a parent might be considered a danger to the child’s well-being. If this is the case, the court will likely order supervised visitation, meaning that a court-approved adult will be present during the entire visit.

Parenting Plan Requirements

Parents have the choice of creating a parenting plan together or allowing a judge to decide on a plan on their behalf. If the separating parents cannot come to an agreement, they must each separately submit a parenting plan for the court to review. The judge has the right to choose one of the submitted plans or to create a new plan.

Your parenting plan should outline:

  • How custody will be divided
  • When the child will live with or visit each parent
  • The child’s education and extracurricular activities
  • The child’s healthcare
  • How the parents will communicate with each other
  • Dispute resolution methods
  • How each parent will financially support the child
  • Proposed child support awards

Knight, Attorney at Law, LLC, your child’s health and safety are the highest priorities. Chesterfield divorce attorney Laurie A.
