Visitation Rights Attorney in Marina Del Rey & Los Angeles

Ensure Your Rights Are Protected

Divorce is difficult, especially when there are children involved. While the courts strive to put the child’s best interest first, it is important that you go into court prepared to defend your rights as a parent. Each parent plays an important role in their children’s lives, but the legal system can be intimidating and the burden of preparing for your custody case overwhelming. This is why it is important that you hire a Marina Del Rey divorce attorney who has experience handling visitation rights cases.

Filing for Visitation Rights

California state law and family code allow noncustodial parents to file for visitation rights after a divorce, but it is important to build a strong case before the courts will grant you visitation. Most frequently, visitation rights are granted when it's in the best interest of the child.

There are multiple types of visitation schedules that can be sought in the State of California. These include:

  • Scheduled visitation: This sets a detailed plan in place to help prevent any confusion or conflict. Dates, times, special occasions, vacations, and holidays are all planned out in advance.
  • Reasonable visitation order: This is a more open-ended plan where both parents can collaborate to reach a schedule that works for them and their children. This offers more flexibility but often only works for individuals who work well with each other without conflict.
  • Supervised visits: In cases where a child's safety may be in question, visitation can be supervised by a professional, yourself, or another responsible adult. This type of schedule is also used when parent and child are unfamiliar with each other.
  • No visitation: When visitation is not in the best interest of the child, or would cause either physical or emotional harm, you can petition for the other parent to have no contact with the child.
