When two parents decide to dissolve their marriage, child custody matters will be considered first and foremost. Whether one or both parents are granted custody, visitation complications are sure to arise. In such situations, the court will have to decide when the each spouse is allowed to see the child through a set of established visitation regulations. At Coontz Cochran, our Burleson visitation rights attorneys understand that separation from your child can be emotionally devastating. Let us help you through this difficult legal challenge.
In order to set the terms of a parent's visitation rights, the state of Texas encourages both parents to work together and formulate a parenting plan that lists set times for visitation periods. If an agreement cannot be reached amicably—a common case—the court will establish the terms and issue a court order after hearing arguments from either side.
Our skilled Burleson visitation lawyers can help you form a beneficial set of visitation rules by considering:
It is important to note that if your child is mature enough to make logical decisions on their own, the court may allow them to do so. In the end, they will always try to make a ruling that considers the best interests of the child, not necessarily the parents.
