How is Visitation Determined in New York?

When a child custody order is disputed, visitation is often awarded to the non-custodial parent of a sole custodial arrangement. New York courts presume that frequent and meaningful contact with both parents is important to the development of the child. Non-custodial parents are typically only denied visitation rights under extreme conditions, such as if there is evidence of harm to the child. The judge will take into account various considerations to ensure that the child’s best interests are protected.

  • Unsupervised visitation
