Do You Have Questions About Visitation Rights?

When a couple has children, custody and visitation are easily the most important issues in a divorce. It is important for parents to protect their relationship with their children as their family undergoes changes. If parents cannot agree on a viable custody and visitation arrangement, the courts will step in to order an arrangement that is deemed to be in the best interests of the children.

Creating A Child Custody And Visitation Plan That Works

The first step to any successful parenting plan is coming up with a child custody plan, which is divided into two parts:

  • Legal custody determines who makes important decisions regarding health care, education and religion
  • Physical custody determines where your children will live

While physical custody may set the rules for how often children live with each parent, it does not necessarily outline how that plan will work. This is where developing a good parenting plan comes into play. We will consider a number of factors in order to come up with a plan that fits your needs, including the location of each parent, school districts, holidays and your work schedule.

Physical Custody And Visitation Rights

Parents often worry about losing those special relationships they have with their children. Barring any extreme circumstances, parents will receive joint legal custody. Things are not always so cut and dry when it comes to physical custody, which determines where the child will live. We will work closely with you to make sure your child's best interests are protected, tenaciously protecting your custody and visitation rights.
