Visitation Options in Utah
Ideally parents need to be able to work together to place the needs of their children first. Joint custody is ideal for parents as it allows both parents the ability to share legal rights, privileges, duties, and responsibilities pertaining to the best interests of the child. Most custody orders will have a clear schedule related to parent time, often broken up based on the following:
- Alternating weekends
- Holiday and vacation schedules
Both parties will need to have a written agreement if scheduling conflicts arise and visitation dates need to be changed. Having everything in writing is the best way to protect yourself in the event of an ex-spouse arguing against the other in future custody disputes.
A clear visitation outline must also include information about who will transport the children and where pick-up and drop-offs will occur.
Altering an Existing Visitation
If you or your former spouse need to alter a visitation schedule, you will need to file for a modification of parent-time. If you are having increased difficulty with your ex-spouse pertaining to visitation agreement, contact our Ogden or Salt Lake family law firm to discuss your situation.
Long Distance Parental Rights
What happens if your ex decides to move far away or out of state? When a parent choose to move 150 miles or more away, the existing visitation structure may not be suitable. In Utah, your ex is required to provide at least 60 days’ notice if they are planning to take the child with them. If you need assistance resolving parent-time problems, contact Ammon Nelson Law, PLLC immediately.
