Child Visitation Cases in New York
In regards to child-related issues stemming from a divorce or separation, the courts will base their decisions on what is in the best interests of the child. The courts will always favor frequent and meaningful contact between a child and the non-custodial parent in an attempt to ensure that the child maintains a positive relationship with both parents. The parent who does not have physical custody of the child, therefore, will generally be given visitation rights. Visitation schedules can be arranged such as weekends, holidays, or overnight visits during the week depending on the distances involved and the schedules of both parents and children. Visitation rights are generally only denied by the courts in cases where it is not safe or optimum for the child.
