When a court determines the visitation rights of a noncustodial parent, it usually orders "reasonable" visitation, leaving it to the parents to work out a precise schedule of time and place. This allows the parents to exercise flexibility by taking into consideration both the parents' and the children's schedules. Practically speaking, however, the parent with physical custody has more control over the dates, times, and duration of visits. That parent isn't legally obligated to agree to any particular schedule, but judges do take note of who is and who is not flexible. If you are uncooperative merely to vex your ex, it can backfire when you need to ask the court for something in the future. Parents have to cooperate and communicate frequently for the reasonable visitation approach to succeed. If you suspect that a loosely defined "reasonable" visitation won't work, insist on a fixed schedule and save yourself time, angst, and possibly money. more

Reasonable times and places allows the parents to exercise flexibility by taking into consideration both the parents' and the child's schedules.

Sometimes courts ordering custody and visitation for children set up schedules, including the times and places for visitation with the noncustodial parent, such as every other weekend or Tuesday and Thursday evenings. A court will be inclined to order a fixed schedule especially if the hostility between the parents is so severe that the constant contact between them may be of detriment to the child. 3. My ex-spouse was physically abusive to me and the children. more
