When a couple divorces and there is a child involved, typically one of the parents will have primary child custody (the custodial parent) and the other parent will child visitation rights.

We believe that parents should attempt to work out a visitation schedule if possible because they are in the best position to determine what is in the best interest of the child. However, we understand that is not always possible.
If both parents cannot agree to a visitation plan, then the court will determine the visitation schedule. Several factors influence the visitation rights of each parent, including employment, living environment, mental stability and criminal record.
After determining a visitation plan, the Suffolk County or Nassau County system may alter the schedule if certain unforeseen situations occur. These situations include an illness of the custodial parent, a change in employment of either parent, a change in the living environment, and criminal activity by either parent.
We also handle child visitation modification requests after a divorce, including requests involving relocation or move-aways.
