the custodial or non-custodial parent you should consult with Staten Island
divorce lawyer Adelola Sheralynn Dow. Because she focuses her practice
exclusively on family law, Ms. Dow is well-versed on the state regulations

court for frequent and meaningful visits with his or her child. Depending
upon the logistics of where the parents reside, various visitation schedules
can be arranged, such as weekends, holidays, or overnight stays during
the week. Courts favor allowing a child to continue a relationship with
both parents and will deny visitation rights to a parent only if it is
in the best interests of the child.

wishes to change or deny visitation rights of your ex-spouse upon legitimate
