Custody and Visitation

If the parents can reach an agreement on the issue, it will become the order of the court. Otherwise, the issue of custody and visitation must be determined by the court after a notice hearing. When a petition for divorce is filed, a party can also file an Order to Show Cause for a temporary custody and visitation order. The parties will be required to attend court ordered mediation.
