What is a Modified Possession Order?

Category: Children

A modified possession order is a visitation arrangement that is different than the Standard Possession Order. A modified order can be created by agreement of the parents or ordered by the court. There are many different types of modified visitation schedules, but some common examples include:

  • one parent has weekends with the child while the other has weekday visits.
  • possession is split equally between both parents.
  • the non-custodial parent has longer visits during the summer or holidays.

A modified possession order is generally based on the best interest of the child and what will work best for the family’s schedule.
