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.
