What is visitation?

Visitation is the right to spend time with your child. Judges will usually grant some form of visitation rights to parents who do not have physical custody of their children except where a judge finds that it would be unsafe or otherwise harmful to the child or the custodial parent.1 For more information, see Can a parent who committed violence get visitation?
