      Parents who do not get physical custody of their children are entitled to visitation, or, as it’s known in several states, parenting time. Most courts operate under a rebuttable presumption that frequent, meaningful contact with both parents is in the best interest of the child. Therefore, a responsible, loving parent who cannot assume custodial responsibility can enjoy regularly scheduled visits without any special restrictions. Parents are typically allowed to work out their own visitation arrangements in a written parenting plan, which is subject to the court's approval.

    Does my spouse have to agree to the divorce?

    Married couples can disagree on anything and everything, including whether they should get a divorce. Once, a spouse’s objection made obtaining a divorce difficult or impossible, but today it’s much easier to dissolve your marriage without your spouse’s consent, by filing a “no-fault” divorce. If you’re considering divorce, a local family law attorney can help you understand all of your options.
