Custody and visitation schedules

Follow Us

A parent who has sole physical custody of his or her children has the children most of the time.  The other parent, the non-custodial parent, has visitation time.

The standard visitation schedule in a divorce says that the children spend time with their non-custodial parent every other weekend and perhaps one night during the week.  This can vary during the school year and summer months, especially when the parents live in different states.

When parents live close to each other and get along, joint custody works well.  Shared parenting plans only work well when the parents put the best interests of their children before any animosities they may have for each other.

The children of divorce suffer the most serious and long-lasting consequences from conflict between their parents.  When parents can see past their anger, they can create a workable plan.
