Who decides what visitation is?
In the absence of a legally binding parenting agreement following the divorce, the parent with physical custody over the child will typically determine what reasonable visitation for the non-custodial parent is. While this arrangement is frequently satisfactory to all parties, disputes can easily occur. For this reason, courts typically ask for parents to come to an official and binding parenting agreement through mediation or other means that details the rights of the non-custodial parent to visitation.
