Parenting Time (Visitation)

Parenting time is the time a parent spends with a child regardless of the custodial designations. The amount, duration and conditions of parenting time that is awarded in a specific case will vary but the guiding purpose of awarding parenting time is to enable the child or children and the parent to maintain a parent-child relationship that is in the best interests of the child or children.

Parenting time may be either supervised or unsupervised.  It is presumed that parenting time will be unsupervised.  However, if a Court determines that parenting time with a specific parent is likely to endanger the child’s physical or emotional health or impair the child’s emotional development, it may require a party’s parenting time to be supervised or Order that no parenting time occur at all.
