Hello and Thank you for using Just Answer. If the custody arrangement cannot be settled amicably between you and the child's dad, you will have to go to court to set a more permanent visitation schedule. What is in the best interest of the child will always be taken into consideration. You can usually contact a family attorney and get a free consultation on the first visit. If more legal advice is needed, you can direct additional questions to our legal Just Answer experts. Thank you and have a great day.
