Fresno Child Visitation Attorney
Child Custody & Visitation Dispute After Divorce
Child visitation rights are often disputed or arise as a legal issue during or following a divorce or between unmarried parents. In the state of California, if a parent is not granted primary custody of a child, he or she is generally granted visitation privileges as an implicit right. Reasonable visitation rights generally refer to frequent and continuing contact with the child, based on what is in the best interests of the child's health, welfare, and safety.
If you are involved in a dispute over visitation rights, you should seek qualified legal representation. As a Fresno lawyer, I recommend that you contact me to discuss your situation. I can provide the legal guidance and support you need in protecting your rights as a parent as well as protecting the safety and welfare of your child. I represent clients in all visitation scenarios, whether you are the custodial or noncustodial parent in a post-divorce situation, whether your divorce is pending and you need to establish a workable arrangement / parenting plan, or whether you are an unmarried parent seeking or contesting visitation rights to your biological child.
Child Visitation Rights in California
Courts determine visitation based on what is in the best interests of the child. Factors which will affect the matter include the availability of the parent for visitation, the child's wishes, the benefits to the child of a continuing relationship with the parent, and more. Negative factors which would result in a denial of visitation rights include a history of child abuse or domestic violence, drug or alcohol abuse, or other illegal activity on the part of the noncustodial parent.
Regardless of the circumstances of your situation, I will work diligently to help you achieve a fair resolution to your visitation legal issue in as efficient a manner as possible.
