Protecting Visitation Rights For Parents With South Jersey Matters
Nothing affects post-divorce parents and families more than the family schedule of visitation with the children. Often, 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.”
Types Of Family Structure Post-Divorce
Below are several different family structures and visitation scenarios post-divorce:
- 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 most 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.
