COURT DECISIONS ON VISITATION
When a court decides on the visitation arrangement for two divorced or separated parents, it may mandate "reasonable" visitation. This leaves the parents to work out the details of the arrangement, such as the exact time and place, on their own. However, the court is usually more inclined to set the details of the arrangement itself, ordering when and where the non-custodial parent is able to see their children, particularly when the parents fail to come to an agreement and continue to be in opposition in the issue.
