Maryland Visitation Lawyer
Talk to Our Family Law Attorneys Today
Divorce is a difficult process, particularly for those whose parent-child relationships
stand to be impacted by terminating the marriage. Upon dissolution of
the marriage, child custody and visitation agreements will be enforced,
thus establishing how parents will divide decision-making responsibilities
and parenting time.
If your parenting and visitation time has been denied or otherwise limited
by your ex, do not hesitate to contact an attorney. At the Law Office
of Robert Castro, P.A., we can help you establish, enforce, or modify
a visitation order in the state of Maryland.
Types of Visitation
There are three types of visitation:
Reasonable visitation allows parents to mutually agree to terms of visitation. However, the
parent with custodial rights does have more power and influence over how
long visitation will last and under what circumstances. If the custodial
parent is uncooperative when allowing visitation rights, the noncustodial
parent can ask the judge to intervene.
Fixed visitation is issued by the judge and relates to how often the noncustodial parent
can legally visit the child. For example, the noncustodial parent could
be granted Monday and Friday nights, meaning the child would spend those
time periods with the noncustodial parent. Judges use fixed visitation
when there is a conflict between parents, as this is a good way to ensure
the child maintains a stable relationship with both mother and father.
Supervised visitation calls for supervision of the noncustodial parent during times of visitation.
Supervised visitation is typically used when the noncustodial parent is
deemed unfit to spend alone time with his or her children. For example,
if a spouse was abusive in the past, he or she would still have a right
to see the children; however, visits would be conducted under the close
observation of another adult.
