Establishing Visitation Rights in California
Our family law attorneys represent parents as they negotiate and establish visitation rights. In California, the Courts take the position that children have a right to continue a relationship with both parents, and that both parents have a right to spend time with their children and participate in their upbringing. This is the legal assumption in most cases, except those in which one parent is deemed to be a danger to their child. Ultimately, custody and visitation decisions are made based on the best interests of the child.
When deciding on visitation, the court may take the following into consideration:
- Each parent’s relationship with the child
- The living and financial situation of each parent
- The age and health of the child, as well as both parents
- Each parent’s willingness to support the other's relationship with the child
- Continuity (disrupting the child’s routine as little as possible)
- Any evidence of substance abuse or domestic violence
