PLEASE TAKE NOTE: Counties change their local visitation schedules. The county you live in may have changed their rule(s) yesterday. The county you live in may have different visitation schedules for Juvenile Court and Domestic Court. The rule may have been changed or updated since the last time this web page was updated. In addition, if you already have a visitation schedule pursuant to local rule, and that schedule was attached to your parenting time orders, it is POSSIBLE that the court did not mean for YOUR visitation schedule to change if the local visitation schedule in your county changes. The local visitation schedules are put on this website as a courtesy and are updated as often as possible. They are NOT legal advice and they are NOT meant to help you figure out if a decision you are about to make would be a violation of an existing court order. If you want to make sure that you have the most current version of the local rule in your county, you can either look on your county Clerk of Court’s website, go to your local Clerk of Court’s office, or call your local Clerk of Court.

The office of the Clerk of Court cannot give you legal advice. This website, although prepared in part by attorneys, cannot and does not give you legal advice. You can only get legal advice by talking to an attorney of your choice about the facts of your case, and the law as it applies to the facts of your case.

We have standard visitation every other weekend and Wednesday is 3 hours. Child is 10. Parents were never married. Both parties are married. Mother does not communicate schooling, activities, healthcare information, nothing at all. We have asked for the mid week visit to be a sleepover and we can get child to school. We feel it would be a waste of money to take mother back to court because she doesn’t even want father in child’s life. Mother cancels our visits and fakes child’s illness. We want more visit or the midweek sleep over. Is there any way this could be changed by court by not spending thousands of dollars for the mom to get a “mother attorney” and be told no. Her husbands brother is a child lawyer so they know they don’t have to answer to us. My poor husband sees / talks to his daughter 5 times a month!! This is not fair. He pays child support and health insurance. Can someone give us advice
