About Standard Possession Orders

Some couples are able to come up with a visitation schedule that satisfies both parties on their own. For those who cannot agree on the terms, the court will issue a standard possession order in most cases (although it may not be appropriate for everyone).

The primary rules for the standard possession order include the following, which may vary based on the distance between the parents:

  • On the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Friday, the child will visit the noncustodial parent from 6 PM on Friday to 6 PM on Sunday schedule varies based on how far away the noncustodial parent lives from the child
  • Every Thursday during the school year, the child will visit the noncustodial parent from 6 PM to 8 PM
  • When there is a school holiday on a Friday, the child will commence the weekend visit on Thursday at 6 PM
  • When there is a school holiday on a Monday, the child will conclude the weekend visit on Monday at 6 PM
  • Each year, the child will visit the noncustodial parent on certain holidays on an alternating basis
  • From July 1 to 31, the child will visit the noncustodial parent, with one weekend being granted to the custodial parent during that time
