Visitation is considered to be a basic right of natural parents, but not necessarily an absolute right. A parent is ordinarily awarded visitation with his or her child unless visitation would endanger the welfare of a child as and where the parent is abusive or neglectful. Ordinarily, even under those circumstances, a court will nonetheless award visitation with restrictive conditions such as supervised visitation or a requirement that visitation be contingent upon counseling, therapy, or drug or alcohol treatment participation and completion.

It is impermissible to deny parental visitation for non-payment of child support.
