In a New York divorce, visitation rights will typically depend upon the child custody arrangement. When parents have joint physical custody, visitation is not an issue as the child or children will live with both parents. When one parent has sole custody, however, the non-custodial parent will have visitation rights. There is no set rule regarding visitation, and the terms or schedule of visitation may be determined by the parents, or if they cannot agree, by the Court.
Working with an attorney on every aspect of your divorce, particularly issues involving your child or children, can help your case in many ways. If your divorce is contested or uncontested, these issues will still come up and will need to be resolved. An experienced New York divorce lawyer can help you determine a visitation schedule and visitation rights that will work best for you and for your child.
