Who has Visitation Right?
Visitation / Visitation Right In family law, the legal visitation right granted by a court to
non-custodial parent (NCP) or other non-custodial relative parent to spent time with his/her a child,
who is deprived custody of a child to visit the child on a regular basis. See Guardian >

Grandparent Visitation
Some courts will determine a grandparent's visitation rights with a minor child where either or both
parents of the minor child is or are deceased, or are divorced, or are living separate and apart in
different habitats regardless of the existence of a court order or agreement, and upon a written finding
that the visitation rights would be in the best interests of the child and would not interfere with the
parent/child relationship. In determining whether to order visitation for the grandparents, the court
shall consider the nature of the relationship between the child and his grandparents prior to the filing of
the petition or complaint.

See the following Kinds of Visitation:
- Supervised Visits: A parent can't be alone with the child. The court will choose someone to
supervise the visits if there are serious concerns about a parent's ability to act properly with the child
or where there has been domestic violence.
Therapeutic Supervised Visits: A mental health professional supervises the visits and can try
during the visits to improve the parenting skills of the parent.
Neutral Place of Exchange: A safe location where a child goes from one parent to the other for
visitation. Examples: a police station, school, library, or mall.
Monitored Transition: A third person is present when the child goes from one parent to the other
for visitation. The reason for this is to make sure of the child's safety and a calm situation for the child.
Some programs also provide a safe place for parents to drop off and pick up children for visitation, a
safe place means that a staff person watches the visit to make sure that the child is not abused during
the visit. See Violence >

Determining the court may deprive the visitation right to non-custodial parent as the following

1. Physical Abuse Includes beating, burning or punching a child.
Neglect Includes failure to provide for a child's basic physical, emotional or educational needs.
Leaving a young child alone or failing to provide medical care may be considered neglect.
Emotional Abuse May involve criticizing, insulting, rejecting or withholding love from a child.
Sexual Abuse Includes rape, touching, fondling, or involving a child in pornography.

Visitation rights after divorce or separation Judges concern the children are best to have two
parents, both of whom care about them. A judge usually will not deny or restrict a parent's right to
reasonable visitation unless if the visitation was bad for a child's physical, mental, moral or emotional
health as descript above. - Copyright © 2010 All Rights Reserved. Terms of Use . Privacy Policy
