Visitation Rights in Wisconsin
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.
Who Has Visitation Rights?
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.
Grandparents also have rights to see their grandchildren after a divorce. If you are a grandparent looking to understand your visitation rights, contact us today to learn more about what you can do to spend time with your grandchildren.
Getting a fair visitation agreement can be vital when you’re the noncustodial parent. You want time with your child, and that can be difficult when the other parent doesn’t agree. If you are a grandparent, your options for visitation aren’t as clearly laid out as if you were a legal parent.
Our attorneys at Karp & Iancu can help you untangle your visitation rights and what you can do to enforce those rights. You and your child may both need this time together, so we’ll help you fight back for that time.
