Visitation Rights: What You Need To Know

Losing time with your children after a divorce or the end of a relationship is really hard. You need an attorney who will listen to your concerns and help find a resolution that helps meet the goals for you and your family.

When a judge determines it is in a child's best interest to grant one parent custody, the other parent is allowed visitation rights under Texas law. In some situations, however, a judge will allow visitation only if it is supervised. This happens when there is reason to believe that the parent may harm the child.

Our firm can help you understand the different ways a judge could rule to allow visitation rights to a noncustodial parent.

In some cases, a judge will order that the custodial parent allow what's called "reasonable visitation." The parents must be able to develop a plan for family court so that your child can have a relationship with both their father and their mother. But we know this is easier said than done. Co-parenting with an ex can be challenging and bring up a lot of conflict. In those situations, sometimes a fixed visitation schedule is better. Our lawyers can help you decide which route might be best for you and your family.
