Visitation/Allocation of Parental Time

Visitation / Allocation of Parental Time

Visitation, as the name suggests, involves anyone spending time with a child who is not the parent or guardian. These individuals might be granted the right to visit the child in question. While it is generally left up to the child’s parents to decide who can and cannot spend time with their child, there are certain circumstances under which a non-parent can petition the court for those rights if the parents reject their wishes.  Those who qualify to file such a request include grandparents, great-grandparents, siblings of the child, and stepparents.

Note that should sole custody of the child be awarded, the non-custodial parent is usually granted visitation with their child. They will have a schedule drawn up by the courts that says when they can visit their child, and under what conditions.
