Visitation in a Texas Divorce
Texas law has what is known as the "standard visitation schedule". The standard visitation schedule is what is usually ordered when parents cannot come to an agreement on their own.
Standard visitation rules may vary depending upon how far away from the visiting parent the children lives. The schedule is different if this distance is greater than 100 miles.
When considering visitation arrangements courts generally want to make sure that children will have frequent, continuing contact with parents who have shown the ability to act in the best interest of the child. The state will also want to ensure a safe and stable environment for the children to grow up in.
In divorce it is common for visitation issues to become contentious. It usually best for parents to share in the rights and duties of raising their child after the parents have separated or divorced.
You cannot legally deny visitation because of failure to pay child support.
