Visitation is used in the statutes to reference time awarded by the court that a Grandparent, Great Grandparent, Stepparent, or a person who has maintained a relationship similar to a parent-child relationship with the child may be entitled to spend with the child. Visitation does not have any legal custodial rights or obligations associated with it.
