How is a visitation schedule created?

While custody determines where the child lives, visitation exists for the non-custodial parent. It is a way to set aside specific time that the non-custodial parent can have with the children throughout the year.

Alabama courts urge parents to create a visitation schedule together, so both parties are satisfied with the end result. If you and your ex-spouse are unable to create a mutually agreeable schedule, the court may step in.

When creating your schedule, the following should be included:

  • A holiday schedule which breaks up major holidays, such as Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Father and Mother's Day
  • A residential schedule for weekdays and weekends
  • A summer schedule for school breaks and vacations

The state supports "frequent and continuing contact" in all visitation schedules, so as to encourage the children's relationship with both parents.
