Visitation rightsYou and your spouse may be thinking of divorce, or may be starting the divorce process, and are unsure of what it will mean for your family. Each family is unique in structure, size, and style, but when divorce is brought into the picture one thing is certain: the family will be affected. So how can you and your family try to make the divorce process easier? By learning about relevant things like visitation rights.

The videography team has been busy creating a series of short videos about all the intricacies of divorce, including visitation rights. The “Visitation Rights” video discusses the reasons, processes, and legal ramifications of basic visitation rights in American law.

American courts, from state to state, encourage both parents to be highly involved in their child’s life. Due to this unanimous sentiment, the courts will usually decide in favor of awarding visitation rights to the non-custodial parent on weekends, holidays, school breaks, and more. The courts try not to disrupt the child’s schedule and life style by encouraging a healthy relationship with both parents.

In some cases, however, the courts will either prohibit visitation or order supervised visitation. These cases usually are because of previous incidents of abuse, whether inflicted upon the child or upon another family member. Supervision is conducted by an appointed court officer.

Visitation agreements or rulings are not set in stone, though. If situations change or issues arise, modifications can be made to the visitation agreement. The court will also change the visitation agreement if the court feels that the visitation is not in the child’s best interest.

There are many factors and unpleasant situations involved in divorce, but when children are involved it is especially important to not let your hostility dictate the outcome of a divorce. Instead, try to be as educated about the divorce process as possible, so you can move on with your life. Because each state is different, the visitation rights and divorce process may vary slightly; so make sure to research family law in your state.
