Does visitation mean dad visiting baby at mom's house, or baby going to dad's without mom? My sister has concerns with allowing her baby to go alone to his house with he and his new wife. She is currently breastfeeding, so it will be sometime before that would actually be possible, but it is a concern of hers.
Also, is the visitation structure simply something that can be worked out between the parents, or should some type of legal document be drafted, signed, etc., outlining the terms of the visitation agreement. If the legal document is the way to approach this, how does one go about ensuring that it is done in the most agreeable, affordable manner?
