In New York, once visitation is deemed appropriate, the court will create a visitation schedule based on the best interest of the child standard. Generally, the non-custodial parent will have visitation with the child every other weekend. Based on a variety of factors, including the age of the child, these visits may or may not be overnight visits.
The non-custodial parent generally has an overnight or dinner visit with the child at least one day per week. Ordinarily the custodial and noncustodial parent will alternate school holidays. In the summer months, when the child is not attending school, the non-custodial parent may have extended visits of a week or more with the child.
