Child Visitation Rights in San Diego: Legal Guidance

Our family law attorneys represent parents as they negotiate anda 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​

Child Visitation FAQ:

Can grandparents seek visitation rights?

Yes, in California, grandparents can seek visitation rights under certain circumstances. They must demonstrate that visitation is in the best interests of the child and that a preexisting relationship with the grandparent is beneficial to the child's well-being.

Can visitation rights be modified?

Yes, visitation rights can be modified if there is a significant change in circumstances that warrants a modification. This could include changes in the child's needs, parental availability, or relocation. However, any modification must still prioritize the child's best interests.

How can a parent's relocation affect child visitation rights?

A parent's relocation can significantly impact child visitation rights. California law recognizes that the child's relationship with both parents is important, so if a parent wishes to relocate with the child, they must obtain the other parent's consent or seek court approval. The court will consider various factors, such as the distance of the move and its impact on visitation arrangements, to determine if modification or adjustment to the visitation schedule is necessary.
