Child Visitation

Child visitation is usually associated with the parent of a divorced couple who does not have child custody.  The parent without child custody often has visitation rights instead.

Child visitation rights are often granted on a regular schedule of alternating weekends and some holidays.  The parent awarded child custody by the court has the flexibility to allow more visitation than the court awards.

In the case of child abuse or child abandonment, visitation rights are usually not granted to the parents for the safety of the child.  In other cases, visitation may only be permitted under the supervision of a social worker.

Young children are overwhelmingly awarded to their mother's custody but children over the age of 12, may be allowed, by the court, to decide for themselves which parent they want to live with.

More fathers in recent times are asking for courts to award visitation rights of 50% and to give them more say in determining the welfare of their children.  This is often referred to as 50-50 parenting and is being supported by some organizations that have been created to further fathers rights.
