Visitation Rights in California

When a couple with minor children divorce, many issues will need to be resolved regarding where the child will live and how often the non-custodial parent will be allowed to visit the child. Divorcing parents can work out child custody and visitation agreements with the help of a Pasadena divorce attorney. When there are differences that can't be resolved, the court will make a final determination in the matter.

If it is in the best interests of the child, the court will want to maintain the parent-child relationship that existed before the divorce. In most situations this means the non-custodial parent will be allowed frequent and on-going visitation with the child.

Can Visitation Rights Be Granted to Grandparents?

Visitation rights may also be granted to grandparents and other individuals that have an interest in the child's welfare. Parents can contest a visitation order based on their 14thAmmendment right to the care, custody and control of their children. Even so, the court may still determine that it is in the best interest of the child for the visitation to occur.

The court prefers that divorcing couples work out their own agreements regarding the care and upbringing of their child, including visitation rights.

Why Will an Order Be Modified by the Court?

When a visitation has been decided by the court, the order may be modified at a later point in time if:

  • An older child wants to spend more or less time with a parent
  • There is a change in residence
  • There has been domestic violence resulting in child endangerment
  • The child has been physically, sexually or emotionally abused
  • The child's school schedule has changed
