Parenting Time (Visitation Rights)
Parenting time (visitation rights) refers to the amount of time a caregiver is allowed to spend time with a child. Parenting time is ordered by a judge in court through a parenting plan, which may also allocate parental responsibilities (custody arrangement).
IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT PARENTING TIME:
If you have been given parenting time with a child, and plan to relocate over 25 miles from your current place of residence, you will have to file a petition to relocate. Only the child's custodial parent can relocate with the child(s)
Parenting time can be modified if it can be shown to a judge that there has been a change in either caregiver's capacity to care for the child
If a caregiver is regularly not with the child during their allotted parenting time, the other parent may request to enforce parenting time
