Child Visitation

The non-custodial parent is generally awarded visitation rights with his or her children and may expect to have overnight visits.

A typical overnight visit schedule for a non-custodial parent may include:

  • Alternating weekends during the school year
  • Two or more consecutive weeks in the summer
  • Alternating spring breaks
  • Alternating Thanksgivings
  • One-half of the Christmas holidays
  • Visits on shorter holidays such as Monday holidays, Independence Day, and fall break

In addition to the overnight visitation schedule, a non-custodial parent may have non-overnight visits on afternoons or weeknights during the school year, on the child’s birthday and the non-custodial parent’s birthday. Typically, Mother’s Day is awarded to the mother and Father’s Day to the father.

The outline above describes a common arrangement that is often awarded by the court. However, the actual award of visitation depends on the unique circumstances and facts of each case.
