One of the primary concerns of parents who are going through a divorce is how that process will impact the relationship they have with their children. A divorce will affect how often a Texas parent sees his or her child and what role the parent will have in the life of the child. An important aspect of a post-divorce relationship is visitation, which is the amount of time a parent will be physically present with the children. There are different types of visitation.
Most parents will want to have as much time with their children as possible. However, in custody arrangements where one parent is the primary custodian of the kids, the other parent will likely also retain visitation rights. The frequency, duration and types of visitations depend on the details of the individual situation and the well-being of the kids. Types of visitation include:
- Unsupervised visitation
- Supervised visitation
- Virtual visitation
When making decisions regarding the custody of children, the courts will prioritize the best interests of the kids and what will provide the kids with stability and security long term.

Texas parents have the right to seek a specific outcome to their custody and visitation concerns. If a Texas parent wishes to seek their desired outcome or a visitation arrangement they believe will be best, it will be helpful to have experienced legal guidance at every step. A family law attorney can provide important insight regarding how to fight for parental rights and seek the protection of the children.
