Child custody and visitation present some of the most emotionally trying issues in the entire arena of family law. To our clients, usually, nothing is more important than the ability to take part in their child or children’s upbringing. At our firm, we promise to provide personal, experienced and effective legal representation to help achieve your goals as a parent.
It is public policy to ensure that children have frequent and continuing contact with both parents after parents separate or dissolve their marriage, or end their relationship. If parents cannot agree on a parenting plan for the children, the court will decide based on what is in the child's best interest.
If you are not the custodial parent, it means that your children live for the majority of time with the other parent, called the custodial or residential parent. Courts and judges generally want to grant the non-custodial parent rights to visit their children because they realize that it is important for each parent to have a significant presence in the lives of children. Contacting an experienced child visitation attorney, like Jeffrey Markowicz will give you an excellent chance at securing your family’s rights.
If you are seeking to establish visitation, feel that visitation is not in the child's best interest, are unhappy with existing visitation arrangements or if the other party is not complying with terms of an existing order contact us for help.
