The visitation Aurora, IL statute does not contain any standard visitation schedule. However, local court rules may contain standard or suggested schedules. The experienced attorneys of Motta & Motta LLC, can help provide a schedule based upon your situation. The court can consider numerous factors in determining visitation rights and scheduling, including the age of the child, the relationship between the parent and child, the distance between the parent and child, the school schedule and any other factors affecting the best interest of the child.

One of the frequently asked questions involves the difference in visitation schedules depending on whether it is sole or joint custody. The short answer might be that there is no difference. In either case the schedule may be identical. There may be an implication that because the parents have opted for joint custody that the noncustodial parent may have greater responsibility and more parenting time by agreement; however, sole custody can provide for as much visitation as joint custody. The terms “sole” and “joint” do not provide for more or less “visitation.” “Joint” custody has more to do with a “parenting agreement” which delineates certain responsibilities for each parent. Although “visitation” is commonly referred to in sole or joint custody cases, it is technically correct to refer to “visitation” in sole custody cases and “parenting time” in joint custody cases.


Most questions of visitation have to do with scheduling and the rules or restrictions.

The schedule can depend on the age of the child, the parents’ schedules, whether is it during the school year or summer, the distance between the parents and any other factor affecting the best interest of the child.
