Parenting time, which was formerly known as visitation, refers to the amount of time the non-custodial parent (i.e., the parent that does not have primary or sole custody) gets to spend with a child. While parenting agreements may be worked out between divorcing parents or even between parents who were never married, when these individuals cannot agree on parenting time, this dispute will be handed over to the family court to resolve.

Factors that Can Impact Parenting Time

When matters regarding parenting time are left up to the courts to resolve, the single most important aspect of this determination will be what is in the child’s best interests. Oftentimes, the court deems the child’s best interests to be in maintaining healthy, loving relationships with each parent. As a result, the following are just some of the specific factors that can go into the court’s consideration of how to distribute parenting time:

  • The child’s wishes (when a child is mature enough to explain these to the court)
  • The child’s age (which can impact how frequent and long the parenting time is on a weekly or monthly basis)
  • Where the parents live (as one parent living out of state could impact how parenting time ends up being divided by the courts)
  • The overall health and living situation of the non-custodial parent.

Parents should be aware of the facts that:

  • Parenting time decisions will generally include considerations regarding which parent may be allocated parenting time over holidays.
  • Parenting time decisions can impact child support obligations.
  • After the court hands down an order regarding parenting time, modifications of parenting time may be possible in the future when certain aspects of either parent’s life substantially change.
