Visitation Rights in New York

When a family judge grants one parent sole custody of a child, the other parent who doesn’t have custody (known as the noncustodial parent) is given visitation rights with the child, unless there is a good reason why shouldn’t have such rights (e.g. domestic violence, alcohol/drug abuse, unsafe home environment, etc.). Visitation allows noncustodial parents to see their child on a regular and continuous basis. The courts encourage both parents to have an ongoing relationship with their children.

The following parties can file for visitation in New York:

  • A child’s biological parent

  • A child’s grandparents

  • A child’s siblings

Both parents who can cooperate and are amicable toward one another can create their visitation schedule. If not, the court will decide on visitation schedule according to the best interests of the child.

In most cases, when a child is attending school, the noncustodial parent can visit every other weekend and have the child stay overnight at least once a week. Both parents often alternate school holidays. During summer break, the noncustodial parent may spend more time with the child (e.g. one entire week or go on a trip). If the noncustodial parent lives far away from the other parent’s home, the court may grant more or less visitation time.
