When one parent doesn’t have custody of the children, the other may still want their visitation rights respected. If you’re concerned about your chances to see your children, our attorneys can help you with your visitation agreement.
When you seek out a divorce, you might know that you can’t handle custody of your children alone. Having time with both parents can be vital to a child’s growth, reaching out to an attorney that is willing to help you protect your rights and has your child’s best interests in mind is vital. Our attorneys have offices in Milwaukee, Waukesha, and Ozaukee counties and can help you manage the visitation process.
Generally, a parent does have the right to see their children and spend time with them. Our attorneys understand that you may want to maintain a relationship with them even if you don’t share a home. However, your rights to visitation may have some limits. Often times, the courts will need to decide whether your visitation would be in the best interests of the child. If the judge believes that the visitation will undermine the child’s relationship with their custodial parent, you may struggle to be allowed visitation.
As such, it’s important to have a lawyer on your side before you begin your fight for visitation rights. Several factors can affect your visitation rights so it’s best not to risk those rights. Instead, seek out an attorney who can help defend your rights.
