What are visitation rights?

A parent who does not have physical custody is awarded visitation rights.  This allows the parent and child to visit each other on a regular basis.

Visitation benefits allow the parent to take their child to their home or enjoy an outing to somewhere else.  When supervised visitation is ordered, a responsible adult must be present during the visits between parent and child.  Depending on the circumstances, a grandparent or other relative can be the supervisor.  In other cases, the parent and child must meet at a specific location so a social worker or court-appointed person can supervise.

If you are a parent who has visitation benefits but also has concerns about those visits, contact an experienced Orange County Family Law attorney who can guide you through those issues and allow you to move on with your life.
