Visitation Guidelines


#1

Is or are there a set of visitation guidelines that a judge would use to establish a visitation schedule for a non custodial parent? I have two children (ages 16 & 13) for whom I have a consent order that is ten years old, and have reasearched online to where children of this age group would/could fall under the equal custody schedule, but I can find nothing that states if a judge in NC would base a new custody schedule on this reasearch.

There is no set of guidelines for custodial time as each case is different and based on the best interests of the children involved. If you wish to change custody that is outlined in an order you must prove that a substantial change in circumstances has occurred which affects the best interests of your children and warrants a change in the scheulde.
