Reasonable Visitation

In divorce, courts may order reasonable visitation for the noncustodial parent, giving the parents freedom and flexibility to figure out a child visitation schedule that works for everyone in the family.

When a judge orders reasonable visitation, the parent with physical child custody has primary control over the child visitation schedule and isn’t obligated to agree to any particular schedule; however, divorce courts generally arrange more precise child visitation schedules if a custodial parent won’t be flexible and reasonable in scheduling visitation. If reasonable visitation has been ordered and the custodial parent continuously makes visitation difficult for the noncustodial parent, a petition can be filed with the divorce court to modify the visitation arrangement.
