Visitation Rights and Schedules
There are a variety of custody arrangements which can be settled upon in a divorce, with different sets of visitation rights applying to each one. In New Jersey you may receive sole custody of your child, joint physical custody, or joint legal custody. No matter what custody arrangement is made, you have a right to see your child unless the following apply:
- Your presence would cause physical harm to the child
- Your presence would cause emotional harm to the child
- There are no alternatives to completely terminating visitation
This is very rarely the case, and even if a parent is not granted physical custody of the child, visitation schedules will typically involve once-a-week visitations during the week and weekend long visitations every other weekend.
