Standard Visitation in a Texas Divorce

Texas law provides for a standard visitation schedule which is presumed to be in the best interest of all children three years of age or older. The purpose of a standard visitation schedule is to assure that children will have frequent and continuing contact with parents who have demonstrated the ability to act in the best interest of a child, provide a safe, stable, and nonviolent environment for the child, and to encourage parents to share in the rights and duties of raising their children after the parents are separated or divorced.

The standard visitation schedule is what is ordered by the court whenever the parents cannot agree to work out their own schedule in advance. This schedule is generally included in what is called the standard possession order. The schedule is different depending upon whether or not the parties live within 100 miles of each other.
