What is the Best Child Visitation Schedule?
The best Visitation Schedule is the one that is appropriate under the circumstances.
If you are seeking a flexible schedule, and the parties get along well for the sake of the children, you can keep the schedule flexible by agreeing that visitation will take place as the parties agree. The problem with this schedule is that you may not always be able to agree.
If you would rather have a set schedule to avoid conflict, you may want to set a specific visitation schedule. A common schedule is for the non-custodial parent to have custodial access on alternating weekends from Friday evening through Sunday evening, a weeknight for a few hours every week, alternate major holidays, split the child's winter and spring breaks from school, and each party to receive two to four uninterrupted weeks in the summer, fathers day, and mothers day. The problem with this schedule is the lack of flexibility.
If parents live far apart and regular weekend visitation is not practical, it is common to allocate more summer vacation and school holidays to the non-custodial parent so that the child will spend substantial uninterrupted time with the non-custodial parent. The costs to transport the child may also be an issue.
If the non-custodial parent is unstable, or addicted to alcohol or drugs, or has abused or neglected the children, then you may want to seek a supervised visitation schedule. Supervision to be done by a third party or agency.
