What Is a Visitation Schedule?
Physical custody is essentially where the child will live, or more appropriately,
who they will live with. The details are usually laid out in a
visitation schedule which details the custody and visitation arrangements that the parents
agree to. A schedule becomes biding and enforceable once the court signs it.
Some things to consider when writing a schedule include:
- Where your child will be during weekends and weekdays
- Where your child will be on holidays and special occasions
- Who your child stays with during summer vacation
- Times when either parent can take the child on vacation
If the child lives primarily with one parent, this parent is known as the
“custodial” or “resident” parent while the other
parent has the visitation rights.
Skilled Representation for Our Custody Dispute
Physical custody breaks down into sole or
joint based on how equitable the time both parents have the child live with
them is. While court generally try to maintain the child’s relationship
with both parents, they can award sole custody to a parent if the other
parent is in any way abusive or it does not serve the child’s best
interests to award joint custody. In some cases all visits with one parent
can be supervised by an appropriate third party.
