What does the court consider when determining visitation rights

In family law proceedings, there are a number of factors that the court considers in order to determine a relative’s visitation rights. These include:

  • The length and quality of the prior relationship between the child and the relative
  • Whether the child is in need of guidance, enlightenment or tutelage which can best be provided by the relative
  • The preference of the child if they are determined to be of sufficient maturity to express a preference
  • The mental and physical health of the child and the relative
