Do all spouses have the right to parenting time?
Typically the spouse who does not have physical custody of the child has the legal right to parenting time. These rights can be withheld if evidence can be brought forth proving that it is in the best interest of the child not to see the spouse (examples: excessive use of alcohol, physical or verbal abuse). The amount and schedule of parenting time is stated in the final agreement or established by the Court.
