In cases where one parent is granted custody and the other parent does not share that custody, visitation rights may be granted. The details of these rights must be outlined in the parenting plan (sometimes called a “parenting agreement”) to ensure that the parent’s right to spend time with their child is not hindered.
Swanson Law Center, P.A. can provide a Gainesville family law attorney to protect your rights as a parent. Your involvement in your child’s life is important and our team can work hard to ensure that you are not cut off from them following a divorce or a disagreement with the other parent. Even when you and the other parent are on good terms with each other, it is still important to have a lawyer on your side to ensure that your rights are honored, your desires considered, and – most importantly – that the decision is made in the best interests of your child.
Visitation rights must be outlined in detail in a parenting plan, which must be filed with and accepted by the Court. The plan must state exactly what dates and times the child will be spending with each parent and, in cases of visitation, whether or not the visits must be supervised by an authorized third-party.
Parenting plans must be explicit in every small detail in order to avoid confusion, which can sometimes affect a parent’s ability to spend time with their child. A seasoned family law attorney will know exactly what information needs to be outlined in your plan and can help you create a parenting agreement that protects your rights and meets your needs. Are you and the other parent unable to come to an agreement on your own? Then you need a skilled trial lawyer to take your case to court.
