Visitation Arrangements For Non-Custodial Parents
There are several types of visits that may be included on a visitation schedule for a non-custodial parent. These include:
- Weekends, holidays, and weeknight visits, during which the non-custodial parent has unencumbered visitation with their child.
- Supervised visits, during which a parent is not permitted to be alone with the child. Supervision is required if there are concerns regarding the child’s physical and/or emotional safety in the care of the non-custodial parent.
- Therapeutic visits, during which a mental health professional supervises the parent with the child and makes suggestions to improve the relationship.
