How is visitation different from custody?
While custody refers to decision-making authority of the parents or guardians, visitation refers to the time the children spend with each parent or guardian. If the parties are able to work together, there does not have to be a set schedule, but having one to fall back on may be preferable to having to go back to court if a problem arises. Some courts have adopted visitation guidelines, but you may prefer a schedule that takes into account the needs of the parents and children, rather than a court-imposed schedule that treats every family the same, and perhaps creates a weekend mom or dad by default. If the parties are unable to agree, however, the court will make a schedule that both sides will have to live with, whether they like it or not.
