There are ways to accommodate parental rights in visitation plans

On Behalf of | Aug 6, 2015 | Child Custody |

It is not uncommon for visitation rights to be one of the most contentious matters of a divorce. Fortunately, divorcing parents in Texas have access to the combined knowledge and experience of the attorneys of Warmbrodt, Winslow & Associates. We recognize that the circumstances of every family are unique, and we endeavor to honor the parental rights of both parents while not losing sight of the best interests of the children.

At our law firm, we understand that the needs of children change as they grow older, and the dynamics of a former family change in time when divorced parents get into new relationships or remarry. These changes naturally impact parenting and visitation plans that were drafted at the time of the divorce — necessitating modifications. Our attorneys encourage parents to utilize collaborative and mediation services to reach mutual agreements rather than time-consuming and costly litigation that can also be traumatic for all parties. However, if issues cannot be resolved in an amicable manner, we will be ready to go to court.

We also act on behalf of parents who are denied court ordered visitation privileges and parents who are concerned about the safety of their children during visitation with a non-custodial parent. While our goal is always to provide clear and workable directives for both parents, our focus remains on each parent’s ability to provide intellectual, physical, spiritual, emotional and moral development for the children. Great-grandparents, grandparents and siblings who are denied access to children with whom they want to maintain a loving relationship may also find comfort in knowing that we are also experienced in obtaining court-ordered access, provided it is in the best interests of the child.

Texas parents who believe their parental rights are being violated may find answers to their questions by consulting with the Allen, Texas, divorce & visitation lawyers at Warmbrodt, Winslow & Associates. We agree with most people that the ideal situation is for parents to communicate and compromise rather than argue about the time each parent has with the child. We can facilitate such communication and may be able to ensure visitation plans that benefit all parties.
