Child visitation


Dear CORRIN2000:

Greetings. The court will look at the situation from all angles and make a decision that the judge believes is in the best interests of the minor children. I will tell you that each judge may view your situation differently - there is no standard or usual rule in your situation, since your situation, you, your spouse, and your children are all unique.

Keep your head up and present your best case and I hope the judge will rule in your favor! Happy holidays!

My ex-husband and I have an upcoming court date concerning child support and visitation. His off days are during the week, and mine are on weekends. He was getting the kids every other weekend, but suddenly he is wanting them on his off days during the week. I have documented proof from teachers at school that the kids’s behavior and schoolwork are not good when they stay at dad’s during the week. We have tried mediation, but he will not budge. We will have to let the court decide since we can not agree among ourselves.
My question is: what is usually the outcome on cases such as mine? Do judge’s usually order visitation to the other parent during the week or would the judge order him to have them on weekends when he works?
