New York Child Custody Attorney

Visitation Rights Lawyer in Long Island, NY

Visitation is awarded to the non-custodial spouse following a separation agreement or divorce. This is the parent with whom the children do not primarily reside. Just as in determining child custody, visitation schedules and rights are determined in regards to what is in the best interest of the child or children involved. As such, visitation will typically vary depending upon the particular circumstances of your divorce or separation.

Having a skilled attorney to represent your rights during legal proceedings and negotiations regarding visitation rights will be crucial. Whether you are the parent seeking visitation or are the custodial parent, it is important that you have an attorney to represent your rights and to look out for your child’s well-being. With the assistance of a skilled New York family lawyer, you can help ensure that the visitation rights awarded will be beneficial to you and your child.

Visitation Schedules in New York

While specific visitation schedules will vary, one of the most common visitation patterns is alternate weekends from Friday after school until Sunday evening at an agreed upon time. Weekday visitation may allow the non-custodial parent to pick the child up from school or visit one or two days after school until an agreed upon time of the evening (usually 7 or 7:30pm).

Holiday visitation usually involves both parents switching off holidays from year to year or alternating holidays throughout the year. Specific visitation schedules regarding school holidays and breaks as well as summer vacation will need to be arranged as well.
