The family courts of California have a broad range of view when it comes to defining what "reasonable visitation" refers to, depending on the individual's situation. If visitation would not be in the best interest of the child, this will not be given. Child visitation orders must be made based on serious regard to the child's health, safety and welfare. The court will also take into consideration the child's age, maturity and any special needs. When examining the non-custodial parent for visitation rights, the court will base the decision on the parent's proximity to the child's primary residence.
