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.
