Lawrenceville Visitation Lawyer

Visitation in Divorce Cases

A divorce involving parents will require various agreements regarding the custody of any minor children. Custody agreements cover both physical and legal custody. Physical custody addresses where the children will reside, and legal custody pertains to the decision-making responsibilities each parent will have regarding their children's upbringing. Types of physical custody include:

  • Sole custody - minor children live exclusively with the parent that has custody
  • Split custody - each parent has sole custody of at least one child when there are two or more minor children
  • Joint custody - physical custody is shared by both parents

If a child primarily resides with one parent, the other parent will have visitation rights. The purpose of visitation is to enable a non-custodial parent to maintain a relationship with his or her children. While the court can deny visitation if a parent has a history of domestic violence, it can also order supervised visitation if it is in the best interests of the child. In a supervised visit, a third person is present to ensure the child's welfare during the visit. A Lawrenceville divorce lawyer can answer any questions you have about visitation, and help you and your ex-spouse work out custody and visitation agreements.
