If you are having problems with visitation rights as either the custodial or non-custodial parent, you may have to go to court to resolve the issue. You will benefit from the legal representation of competent Staten Island divorce attorneys who can ensure that your rights as a father are protected through the courts. If you are the non-custodial parent you must continue to make child support payments to avoid becoming the subject of an enforcement application.
The non-custodial parent can generally obtain visitation rights from the court for frequent and meaningful visits with his or her child. Depending upon the logistics of where the parents reside, various visitation schedules can be arranged, such as weekends, holidays, or overnight stays during the week. Courts favor allowing a child to continue a relationship with both parents and will deny visitation rights to a parent only if it is in the best interests of the child.
If you have visitation rights and are being denied visits by your ex-spouse, you must seek help from the courts. If you are a custodial parent who wishes to change or deny visitation rights of your ex-spouse upon legitimate grounds, you also must go through the courts. In our practice as Staten Island child visitation attorneys, we can provide experienced legal help in any matter concerning visitation rights.
