Understanding your visitation rights as the parent without physical custody of your children can be difficult. In most cases, the parent without custody of the child or children (the non-custodial parent) can get frequent and meaningful visitations with their kids. Unless the parent with custody can show that visitation by the non-custodial parent would be bad for the child, visitation is generally permitted.
A common visitation schedule is having the child for overnight stays every other weekend, on certain holidays, or sometimes for one night in the middle of the week. Overnight visitation is sometimes denied if the noncustodial parent does not have a safe place for the child to stay. If seeing the non-custodial parent is in the best interest of the child, the courts will not deny you the right to visit your kids.
If the parent with custody denies you your right to see your child, it is time to contact a Long Island visitation attorney who can out an end to this immediately, like the attorneys at our firm.
