An Overview of Visitation Rights in NC

If a divorcing couple is unable to come to a mutually acceptable visitation schedule, the courts will interfere and make a decision on their behalf. Typically, a non-custodial parent will be granted visitation rights unless the parent exhibits some sort of extreme behavior that is deemed detrimental to a child's wellbeing. In most child custody cases, however, it is deemed healthy and desirable for a child to have access to both the custodial and non-custodial parent.

The courts will make their decision based on the following:

  • A child's preference
  • The child's best interests
  • The child's relationship with his or her parents
  • Any special needs of the child
  • The presence of abuse

Visitation can be ordered to be supervised or unsupervised, depending on the parents' ability to provide reasonable care. If you are facing visitation battle, it is imperative that you consult with our firm in order to make an accurate assessment of your case and determine the most appropriate strategy to pursue.
