Visitation and Parenting Time

Massachusetts Visitation and Child Custody Attorney

Visitation and Parenting Time is the time the non-custodial parent spends with
a child/children.  The non-custodial parent does not have legal child custody.

Most professionals in the field of child development suggest shorter, frequent parenting times for very young children. As a child matures, the blocks of time can be expanded to consecutive days/ overnights. Typical parenting time includes alternating weekends, and weekday dinner visits/overnights, depending on distances of residences and schools. Frequent telephone and email communications between children and parents are common. Vacation time and Holiday celebration is also defined by sharing or alternating the time each parent spends with a child.
