Visitation

Visitation is the schedule for shared time between a child and the parent (or third party) who does not maintain the primary residence of the child. Maryland courts strive to make custody and visitation decisions that are in “the best interests of the child". The court handling the custody case has considerable flexibility in determining what arrangement is in the child's best interests.
