Abstract

Visitation problems were examined from the perspectives of residential and nonresidential parents on 3 occasions. Visitation problems were common at all assessments and moderately stable over time. Residential parents' perceptions of visitation problems were significantly correlated with concerns about their ex-spouse's parenting abilities shortly after filing for divorce and 3 years later. Also, shortly after filing for divorce, anger/hurt about the divorce uniquely predicted residential parents' reports of visitation problems. Implications for practice are discussed.
