In a Nashville area divorce, visitation rights will typically depend upon the child custody arrangement. When parents have joint physical custody, visitation is not an issue as the child or children will live with both parents. When one parent has sole custody, however, the non-custodial parent will have visitation rights. There is no set rule regarding visitation, and the terms or schedule of visitation may be determined by the parents, or if they cannot agree, by the Court.
