When parents separate, disputes surrounding child custody and visitation rights may occur. While both parentsshould ideally make decisions based on the best interests of their child, some parents can be unfit to care for a child for one reason or another. In an ideal situation, both parents would work together to work out a custody plan and agree on visitation rights for the non-custodial parent. However, when parents cannot put their personal feelings for each other aside or one parent has been proven to be incapable of taking proper care of a child, disputes will inevitably arise.

About Child Custody & Visitation Cases

When parents cannot agree on child custody and visitation rights, the court will step in to help. These decisions are made in the best interests of the child, and take into consideration the following factors:

  • The child’s primary caregiver
  • The mental and physical health of each parent
  • The financial status of each parent
  • The wishes of the child after a certain age

In order to prepare yourself for your child custody and visitation case, there are some key terms you need to know.

  • Custody:: This refers to who has physical and legal custody of the child. While joint custody – where both parents get equal care – is the ideal solution, often it is not possible due to factors such as one parent being unfit to care for a child or parents living too far away from each other. Sole custody can be given in such cases, where one parent is given the main responsibilities of care and maintenance for the child.Parents may also share custody. Sometimes, the physical custody is with one parent but both parents share legal custody.
  • Visitation: In cases of sole custody, the non-custodial parent is granted visitation time according to an agreed schedule. If the parties cannot agree to the visitation schedule, the Supreme Court Child Visitation Guidelines will be followed. Visitation times must be strictly adhered to and the other parent can have a legal case if one parent is found to have violated the terms.
