When you break up, separate, or divorce, a distinction is always made between the parent with whom the child has a permanent address (the resident parent) and the other parent (the non-resident parent). You are thus the non-resident parent and have so-called visitation with your child if the registered address of the child is that of the other parent. You are a resident parent if you and your child have the same registered address. If you have so-called shared visitation the child spends equal time with each of you, there is still a resident parent and a non-resident parent.
In general, you reach agreement yourselves as to the scope of visitation. There are no rules on the manner or amount of visitation your child can or shall have with the non-resident parent. It is entirely up to you to deem what is best for your child. If the Agency of Family Law is to determine visitation, such takes place after a concrete assessment of the child’s circumstances.
Custody and visitation are not directly related to each other. For example, even if you have sole custody of your child, it may well be you who is the non-resident parent and not the resident parent.
