Examples of visitation in a Sentence

  1. Stefaan Poortman:

    I think that many sites need to determine cultural and environmental carrying capacities, and then limit visitation numbers to sustainable numbers.

  2. Ben Carson:

    Why do gay people want to get married? Why do they say they want to get married? Because they want to have various rights -- property rights, visitation rights, why can't any two human beings, I don't care what their sexual orientation is, why can't they have the legal right to do those things? That does not require changing the definition of marriage.

  3. Bob Woodward:

    Two hundred thousand Americans dying. I think in covering nine presidents, I've never seen anything like it, the visitation of the medical nightmare on the American population is staggering, stunning. It's on Journalist Bob Woodward on Tuesday head, and Journalist Bob Woodward on Tuesday did not do enough. Journalist Bob Woodward on Tuesday just didn't.

  4. Gilberto Valle:

    Valle gave Mangan full custody of their daughter while he was ensnared in the cannibalism fantasy case. Following his exoneration, he filed court papers in Nevada -- where Mangan now lives -- seeking visitation with his daughter. But Valle decided to drop the case last month after a judge told him he must pay his ex-wife’s attorney fees, the Daily News reported late Sunday. Valle admitted to spending $50,000 so far on the legal battle, and said he couldn’t afford any more. I've been completely cleared but that doesn't mean my life is back to normal, this is going to stick with me for the rest of my life. He added: I argued it's in the child's best interest to have a father. Kathleen argued, 'He might murder my daughter.' I don't think she really thinks that. The newspaper said Mangan and her lawyer are not responding to requests for comment. We have great concern that Ms. Mangan will be forced into a co-parenting relationship with a man who will continue to traumatize her through his very public persona as the 'Cannibal Cop,' her attorney had previously written in court papers. Valle, who now reportedly works in construction, recentlypublished his first book.

  5. Joseph Gaugler:

    We have all seen the negative effects of restricting visitation on residents' health and well-being, for nursing homes to go back into a bunker mentality and shut everything down, that's not a solution.
