How Is Visitation Determined?

A judge will make decisions regarding visitation rights based on what is in the best interests of the child. Typically, this means that parental preferences and opinions are trumped by the situations that prioritize the child’s care. The best interest of a child can be influenced by numerous factors.

  • Health-Related Needs
  • Parent-Child Relationship
  • Financial Capabilities
  • The Age of the Child
  • Ability to Provide Care
  • Parental Environment

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Questions

  • What Is Supervised Visitation?

    Answer

    Visitation agreements can come in many forms and supervised visitation is one such variant. Here, a judge may award the non-custodial parent time with the child; however, the parent cannot do so alone. These agreements may also specify conditions such as the duration and location of such visits.

  • Can a Grandparent Be Granted Visitation?

    Answer

    Yes. However, the situations where a judge may grant one or more grandparents visitation rights can be highly specific. As with most cases involving child custody and visitation, a judge will make decisions based on what is in the best interest of the child.

  • Can I Modify an Existing Agreement?

    Answer

    While it can be difficult to change an agreement, it may be possible to secure a modification. Typically, a judge will grant a modification only if it can be shown that a substantial change in circumstances has occurred since the original order was issued.
