    Default the spouse one is divorcing from

    One must concede the legal status of the spouse one is divorcing from as the child's parent and must fully cooperate with the spouse’s exercising visitation.


    Still racking my brain with the article I've been writing since yesterday...

    Could anyone help me rewrite the two underlined phrases?

    As for the first one, I was trying to add a modifying phrase to " the spouse" but I don't know how it scans and, for the second one, I am not sure whether "exercising visitation" is a legitimate expression.


    Many Thanks

    I would delete "from."

    might be a better idea.

    What would be the experts' take on that?

    '...the spouse's visitation rights" seems better to me.
