Child Custody & Visitation
When sole physical custody is awarded to one parent, the judge will typically grant the other parent visitation rights. A visitation schedule will outline when, where, and for how long the non-custodial parent will be permitted to visit the child. In some cases, a parent may be only allotted a few hours to spend with his/her child a few days a week. However, in other cases a parent may be allotted an overnight visit and some day-long visits on the weekends. The schedule depends on the decision of the judge, who will take into consideration a number of factors before announcing the terms of the visitation order, such as each parent’s occupation and income, each parent’s ability to provide for the child, each parents lifestyle, the child preference (in some cases), etc.
In some cases a judge may rule not to grant visitation rights. This usually happens if the non-custodial parent as a history of drug addiction, alcoholism, abusive behavior, or a criminal record. However, people can change. If you currently do not have custody or visitation rights, a lawyer at our firm can bring your case before the judge to request a modification of the original child custody order. As long as you can convince the judge that spending time with you is in the best interest of the child, the judge will likely grant you visitation rights.
