Poughkeepsie Child Visitation Lawyer

Helping Clients Draft, NEGOTIATE, and Modify Visitation Agreements in New York

When you and your spouse get a divorce or when two unmarried parents share children, child custody and visitation will be important topics to discuss. Child custody refers to which parent the child or children will live with or how living arrangements will be split between the parents. Visitation refers to a non-custodial parent’s right to see and interact with their child. While the child may live with one parent, the court recognizes that involving the other parent can benefit all children.

    Understanding New York Visitation Rights

    It is preferable if an agreement can be reached without asking a judge to render a decision because it can be difficult for a family judge to know all of the details of your situation and take into account your family’s unique needs.

    However, if you cannot decide on an arrangement, the decision will be left wholly in the hands of the judge. This legally-binding order will consider the child’s best interests, but it may be less flexible and customized than a visitation agreement may be.

    What is Included in a Visitation Agreement?

    A visitation agreement will generally include the following:

    1. When the non-custodial parent gets to see the child
    2. Who gets to have the child on evenings, holidays, and weekends
    3. Who takes the children to school and who picks them up
