The Basics of Visitation in California

In California, courts use visitation as the way to describe how parents will share time with the children. The non-custodial parent, or the parent who has less than half of the time with the children, receives visitation orders. There are a number of different types of visitation orders and your orders will ultimately depend on the needs of your family.

Common visitation orders in California include:

  • Visitation according to a schedule
  • Reasonable, or open-ended, visitation
  • Supervised visitation
  • No visitation

Children often benefit from visitation orders, which determine when each parent gets to spend time with the children and for how long. This is an excellent way to eliminate unnecessary confusion between parents and prevent conflicts that can arise over visitation orders. Only when it would be harmful for a child to spend time with a parent does the court refrain from creating visitation orders.
