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.

orders, you may become overwhelmed or feel that your rights are begin
