What Is Parenting Time and Visitation?

Clients often ask what is parenting time and what is visitation. That really just means time spent with you children. When a parent is not granted sole custody, an order for visitation is needed. Watch this video to learn more.

Parents often agree to a visitation schedule, but if not, the court will decide. If the parent is unstable or a danger to the child, supervised visitation will be ordered. However, if this is not the case, the court will order unsupervised visitation. This will allow the non-custodial parent to have the child for overnight visits.

The courts are more flexible with visitation rights than they were in the past. Years ago, visitation usually meant weekend visits. Now, if the child is safe with the parent, the court is likely to order regular visits.

The Cimino Law Firm understands that parents need to spend meaningful time with their children. They do not just visit them. They parent them. They teach them and raise them, even if they are not the sole physical caregiver. That is why we fight to help parents receive a visitation schedule that will help the child’s growth, development, and well-being.

On the other hand, if your spouse is a danger to your child, we will work to protect him or her. Everything we do is in the best interest of the child.
