§7.04 Visitation Pending Hearing

You must continue to permit the parent to visit the child pending the .26 hearing unless you find that visitation would be detrimental to the child. You must also make appropriate orders that enable the child to maintain important relationships, other than with siblings, that are consistent with the child's best interest. [WIC §§366.21(h), 366.22(a), 366.25(a); CRC 5.708(i), (n).]

You may modify terms of the visitation from previous levels to meet current needs. To deny visitation, you must find that visitation would be detrimental by a preponderance of the evidence. [In re Manolito L. (2001) 90 CA4th 753, 761-762.]
