The Who, When & How of Visitation Rights

  • WHO Can Request Visitation Rights? - Any parent who does not have custody of their child/children can file a visitation rights petition with the Family Law Court against the parent who has custody.
  • WHEN Should I Petition for Visitation Rights? - A parent who does not have custody of their child/children can petition for visitation rights at any time. Keep in mind that the sooner you take action, the sooner your case will be concluded.
  • HOW Do I Petition for Visitation Rights? - Go to the Family Law Court and obtain the necessary paperwork. We strongly recommend that you review and complete the documents with the guidance of a family law attorney. You will then return to Family Law Court and submit your petition with the clerk. You can request to have your case referred to mediation to be resolved out of court, or you can request to have your case litigated before a judge if it is a contested issue.
