Order for Visitation in New York State
When a parent is looking to receive visitation rights, that parent will have to file an order of visitation to receive a court-ordered visitation schedule. Depending on the circumstances of your custody denial, you may have either supervised or unsupervised visitation with your child. Additionally, grandparents and siblings may also file petitions for orders of visitation as well. That being said, you should note that courts will always primarily consider the best interests of the child. As long as they believe that the party seeking visitation would benefit the child, the court should grant visitation rights. If you already have visitation rights and you believe you are ready and able to share custody of your child with his or her other parent, you may request a modification with the assistance of our firm.
