At John J. Ready and Associates, we provide a full range of legal services for those individuals involved in a divorce case. One of the main issues that we assist our clients with is counselling them regarding visitation issues.
Every single jurisdiction has their own rules guiding visitation and minors. The process of determining visitation is one in which the court determines where and when the children can spend time with each of their parents individually. The court has the power to determine how much time a parent or a grandparent can spend with a child.
There are a wide variety of options available to the court which may come into play in your case. Depending on where you live and where your court case was filed, the judge or mediator may offer you:
- Mid-week visitations for a certain number of hours for the parent that hasn’t been awarded the majority of the time with the children.
- Holidays, such as Easter, Rosh Hashanah or Thanksgiving, that alternate from year to year.
- Specific holiday schedules, such as the child spending Father’s Day with the father and Mother’s Day with the mother regardless of whose weekend it is for custody of the child.
- Provide the ability for the parents to trade days without having to approach the court for permission.
Currently, visitation issues can be resolved through litigation, or any of the alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods currently available in the State of Ohio. Working closely with your divorce attorney will allow you to achieve the best results for your particular visitation case.
