Child Visitation and Parenting Time

South Jersey Visitation Attorney Christopher Musulin Musulin Law Firm, LLC

Nothing affects post-divorce parents and families more than the family schedule of visitation with the children. Oftentimes, one of the parties in a divorce action will have primary residential custody of children after the dissolution of the marriage and the other parent will have "parenting time." Below is described some of the different structures of families post-divorce and the visitation scenarios.

A noncustodial parent or "parent of alternate residence" does not have physical custody on a regular basis, or less than 50 percent of the time with the child/children. A custodial parent or "parent of primary residence" has the child/children residing with him or her the majority of the time.

Split parenting is when parents have multiple children from their relationship with each parent having physical custody of at least one child.

Shared parenting includes a noncustodial parent having significant overnight parenting greater than 104 nights per year or one in which both parents equally share the overnights with the child/children.
