Temecula Visitation Attorneys

Ready to Help Parents Spend Time with Their Children

When one parent is granted sole custody of a child, the other parent—known as the noncustodial parent—will obtain visitation rights to spend quality time with his/her child. Parents can create their own schedule and the court will approve it, so long as the schedule is in the child’s best interests. However, creating a visitation schedule can also be a heated dispute.

At Singleton Smith Law Offices, Inc., we are ready to help parents obtain the visitation schedule they need to have sufficient time with their children. Our legal team has more than 25 years of combined experience handling a wide range of family law matters, from divorce to modification.

If you are interested in obtaining or modifying a visitation schedule in Temecula, contact us today at (951) 779-1610 for a free initial consultation.

Types of Visitation Orders

Visitation is a plan for how each parent will share time with their kids. In general, a schedule will include the dates and times the children will spend with each parent during the week, on the weekends, during holidays, on vacations, and for special events such as birthday, graduations, etc.

Detailed Visitation

Parents and courts often develop a visitation schedule that details the dates and times the children spend with each parent. As we mentioned before, these schedules include holidays, vacations, and special occasions. In addition, such schedules will also include pick-up and drop=off locations and times and the transportation duties of each parent.

Reasonable Visitation

The visiting parent has the right to spend a “reasonable” amount of time with his/her children. This type of schedule does not consist of specific details of how much time each parent will spend with the kids, allowing the parents to determine what is considered reasonable time.

This type of visitation schedule works well with both parents can cooperate well and can be flexible with each other’s schedule. This unrestricted agreement also encourages parents to effectively communicate with one another.

Supervised Visitation

If a noncustodial parent has a history of abuse, absence, or addiction, then the judge may only award supervised visitation. Either the other parent, another adult, or a court-appointed visitation supervisor will oversee the noncustodial parent’s visitation with his/her children at a court-approved location.

No Visitation

If a court determines that a parent’s contact—even with supervision—will endanger the physical health and emotional wellbeing of a child, then no visitation will be ordered. Parents who wish to stop visitation must provide the court with evidence that visitation is not in the child’s best interests.

Grandparent Visitation

In California, grandparents have a right to request reasonable visitation with a grandchild. The grandparent must show the court that there was a “pre-existing relationship” between him/her and his/her grandchild and giving visitation rights to the grandparent is in the best interests of the child.
