The Access & Visitation Program 

January 30th, 2024

Just because you are not the custodial parent does not mean that you lose all rights to visitation with your kids. In North Carolina there is a program known as The Access & Visitation (AV) Program. Within the AV Program it is a big goal to figure out resources that are not readily available for the community, and seeking to implement them.
