Clenney and Palmer LLC
CHILD VISITATION IN ALABAMA
If you and the other parent agree on your custody and visitation schedule, you can have any schedule you want. If there is no agreement, the child visitation lawyers at Clenney and Palmer LLC will negotiate with the other parent or other parent's attorney to secure the best visitation schedule for you.
If no agreement is reached between the parties regarding a visitation schedule, the judge will determine it. Alabama doesn't have a standard visitation schedule for the state, but many counties and judges have a standard schedule they other when the parent's don't agree. The judge can order almost any visitation terms as he or she sees proper under the facts and circumstances of your situation.
The standard child visitation schedule looks something like this:
The child lives with the custodial parent and visits the non-custodial parent:
Every 1st, 3rd, and 5th weekends from 6:00 p.m. Friday to 8:00 a.m. Monday.
Every Wednesday from 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Thursday.
The parents alternate the holidays as follows:
For summer break, the non-custodial parent has the first half during the even number years and the second half during odd numbered years. The parent who doesn't have the child gets weekend visitation
The standard schedules from the courts differ in exchange times, holidays and summer break time. All the standard schedules are meant to be the minimum amount of time that the non-custodial parent has with the child.
The child visitation lawyers at Clenney and Palmer LLC practice in multiple counties in Alabama and know what the courts or judge use as their standard visitation schedule.
