What is Reasonable Visitation?
In Montgomery County, Maryland, the Court typically considers "reasonable visitation" for the non-custodial parent to be alternating weekends from Friday to Sunday, alternating holidays, at least 2 weeks of summer vacation and a midweek visit for dinner or overnight.
When parents do not live in the same geographical area, reasonable visitation may include 1 weekend per month, alternating holidays and extended visitation up to 7 weeks during the summer.
The Court can also require parents to share transportation responsibility and costs to exchange custody when parents do not live in the same geographic area, including airfare, hotels or other reasonable expenses.
Keep in mind that the Court determines reasonable visitation case-by-case based on the best interests of the particular child.
Alimony is awarded on a case-by-case basis in Maryland. The court decides the amount and duration of spousal support, based on what it considers a fair and equitable award for both parties.
