Establishing Visitation Schedules in New York
In most cases, the court awards some type of visitation rights to the parent who does not have physical custody. Typically, the court still wants parents who are divorced, separated, or have never been married to both be in contact with the children if they are both willing and interested. If you are having difficulty establishing parental rights or struggling with the visitation schedule which has been given to you, we can help you to appeal or modify the decision.
What can I do if I'm being denied visitation with my child?
As the noncustodial parent, the court ordered that you receive a certain amount of time with your child, and if your former partner is keeping the child from you, you can enforce your legal right to visitation. Our firm can assist you in filing a petition for modification with the court that requests that the terms of your visitation order be modified or enforced so that you receive adequate time with your child. If your relationship with your child is at risk, do not hesitate to contact our firm to learn how you can enforce the court's orders.
Representation for Problematic Visitation Cases
Although the court typically tries to involve both parents in the child's life, there are some cases where they will not grant visitation rights. If you believe the other parent of your children could be causing harm to them, such as in the case of domestic abuse, alcohol abuse, or drug use, it is vital that you retain representation. We can gather evidence to present a case to the court illustrating why your ex-spouse or the other parent should not be around your child.
