How Visitation Schedules are Decided
In an ideal situation, you and your ex-spouse will work together to create a visitation schedule that considers both your best interests. If this is possible, you should still hand a copy of the agreement to your attorney for review before signing it. The more likely scenario is that you will be in contest with your ex-spouse regarding when it is and is not acceptable for you to see your child. When cooperation is not likely, the court will ultimately need to decide for you following a hearing.
Factors the court will consider when deciding on a visitation schedule are:
- Work schedule of both parents
- School schedule of all children
- Holidays celebrated by the family
- Child’s wishes, if a teenager
As with all matters in family court, your child’s best interests come first and foremost in a visitation case. Keep this in mind as you work on or propose a schedule. If anything would be an inconvenience for your child, the plan could be turned down by the court and sent for revisions. Working with a lawyer upfront can help avoid this trouble.
