Depending on what is the schedule that’s been worked out in terms of custody, is it 50/50 custody? Is it every weekend? Is it every other weekend? If there is a primary custodial parent that has been decided in the matter, either through mediation or by the courts, the other parent will always have rights to visitation. Georgia has a standard visitation schedule, which is usually every other weekend. However, depending on the relationship that the parents have, it could be every week. It could be four days on, you know, three days off. It depends on that person, but or on the parties specifically, but for sure if there is one parent that has primary custodial rights, the other parent absolutely will get visitation. That is an automatic right.
