The parent who does not have physical custody of a child is normally offered "reasonable visitation" rights with the child. Visitation rights permit the non-custodial parent (the parent without physical custody) time to spend with their child. Schedules and rights for child visitation can be implemented either by the court or left to the parties involved to agree upon.
Our child custody lawyers can help in a variety of matters regarding visitation rights and changes. If the other parent is not obeying the agreement that was made or the order was set by the court and is trying to enforce changes that you do not agree with, it is important to seek legal representation. Alternatively, if you are the custodial parent and do not agree with the visitation rights that the court has granted the other parent, contact our lawyers. Our attorneys can also help if you are a non-custodial parent that wishes to contest the rulings made by a court. We can help fight for your rights to modify visitation changes in your favor, no matter what the situation may be.

Grandparents also have the right to visitation.
If a parent is keeping grandparents from either side from visiting with a child, legal action may be taken and changes can possibly be made to rectify this situation. If the grandparents being denied visitation have shown no threat to the child’s wellbeing, there is no reason why the grandparents should be denied rights to visit the child—at the very least, court-supervised visits or visits that are supervised by one of the parents.
