Liberal Visitation Law and Legal Definition

Liberal visitation is generally defined by the parties in an individual matter. The courts usually don't get involved unless the parties are unable to agree upon its definition without court intervention. If the parties cannot agree, the court can structure visitation rights so that both parties have a strict understanding of when visitation is appropriate.

The phrase "liberal and frequent visitation" has no defined meaning in a court of law. The phrase may mean whatever the custodial parent says it means and be subject to change without notice. Specificity in visitation agreements is used to avoid conflicts over the definition of liberal visitation.
