How to Secure Your Visitation Rights
Once a divorce is complete where children are involved, you will have settled and agreed upon visitation rights, or the court will have issued you your rights. If you are past this point, and you need a modification to these rights for whatever reason, our law firm can work with you.
Here are some circumstances that can require a change in the terms of your visitation rights:
- You or the other parent plans to move
- Employment change, or other scheduling conflicts
- Allegations of domestic violence or abuse
When you need a change to the terms, our firm can help you through the request and application process. You will need to demonstrate that there has been a significant change in circumstances that require a new court order for the best interest of the children involved. In an ideal situation, both parents will agree upon the changes, and the application can be expedited. When the parents do not agree that circumstances have changed, then you will need to make a convincing case with the child's best interests in mind.
If you want to begin the divorce or separation process, then your right to visitation is one of the elements that you will need to address. Your Orange County visitation attorney will work with you to clearly establish when the child will be with you, and when they will be with their other parent. In order for these terms to be enforceable, they must be clearly spelled out. If you and your spouse are unable to agree on these terms, then the court will decide the appropriate course of action, based on the best interests of the child.
My Visitation Rights are Being Violated
If you find that your visitation rights are constantly being violated, and you have a visitation order that clearly states your rights, you can have your local police enforce the order. It may be beneficial to keep detailed records of these violations if you feel that they are destined to continue, or if you find that the other parent has malicious intent. Detailed records will help your case if you are required to go to court to ensure that your rights are upheld.
