Child custody and visitation arrangements can be the most emotional and contentious aspects of a divorce. Concerns about parental rights are common during and after the divorce process, with parents wanting to make sure they have as much time as possible with their children.
Visitation, also known as parenting time, is awarded by a court to a noncustodial or joint custodial parent as part of a divorce. Since traditional visitation orders do not always meet the needs of individual families, it is important to consult an experienced family law attorney to ensure that your arrangements are fair and appropriate.
