Following a divorce or separation of parents, it is presumed under Utah law that it is in the best interests of children to have meaningful relationships with both parents. Consequently, both parents should be afforded liberal visitation (otherwise known as parent-time) free of interference from the other parent. Parent-time schedules should not be entered into lightly following a separation. Arrangements agreed to even on a short-term basis may seriously affect the rights of the parents during court proceedings. Accordingly, it is highly advisable that you consult a legal professional before making a visitation schedule.
