The non-custodial parent is entitled to visitation, or parenting time with the child. There is usually a pre-established schedule, either by court order or agreement, such as alternate weekends with a mid-week time as well. Holidays and school vacations will alternate for the benefit of the child and parent.
The parties should have flexibility to modify the parenting schedule upon mutual agreement and consent as unforeseen situations may arise. However, if the non-custodial parent is unable to exercise their visitation due to the wrongful actions of the custodial parent, they can seek remedy in court.
