When one parent is awarded primary custody in a divorce proceeding, the other parent is often given visitation rights to see the child on a determined schedule. The determining factors in visitation are things like parents work schedules, living situations, and what is in the best interest on the child. By having an experienced attorney on your side during a visitation hearing, you can make sure your best case is presented to the court.
While there is truly a unique visitation arrangement for each and every divorce, the every other weekend arrangement is a common structure. In this arrangement, the visiting parent will take custody of the child for the weekend every other week. Also, the visiting parent will usually be granted certain holidays through the year, as well as an extended summer visit.
