Parenting time or child visitation disputes can occur for many reasons. In some instances, a custodial parent may refuse to allow the other parent to see the child. In some cases, grandparents and siblings may make application for visitation rights that are opposed by the custodial parent. In other cases, a noncustodial parent may seek to increase his or her parenting time with the child.
