You should seek reasonable visitation time with your child

Visitation is often a concern during divorce, especially if one parent is not set to be the primary custodian of their children. Maybe their schedule is just too busy to have regular custody, or perhaps they are not suited to care for their children around the clock for some other reason. No matter what the reason is, it's important that all parents have an opportunity to seek visitation fairly through the court.

Parents generally have the right to see their children, barring some extreme circumstances. In most states, it's presumed that parents will share custody rights and see their children approximately 50% of the time, equally sharing as much time as they can.

In practice, there is usually one parent who has more power in these custody cases. That parent may have primary custodial rights and have more influence over how much time the other parent has with the child in question. It's important for that parent to be reasonable and flexible. If they are not, then the court may see this and be more willing to rule in favor of the noncustodial parent in the future.

As a parent, all you need is reasonable visitation time with your child. You know that you will have to share time, and you know that the time you get is precious. If you believe that you will need to fight for time with your child, let your attorney know. They can work with you to help build a strong case for custody and visitation rights, so you can continue to see your child regularly.
