VISITATION PROBLEMS

VISITATION ISSUES

LEGAL NEWS YOU CAN USE FROM THE DESK OF MICHAEL S. BAILEY, ATTORNEY-AT-LAW.

One of the most difficult questions presented to a family law attorney from a client is the question whether a child must have parenting time with the other parent when the minor child has expressed his or her desire not to do so. This question arises frequently during the holidays.

A parent should always follow the current order of the court unless an extreme situation exists such as a situation concerning the safety of the child.

If the facts warrant, a parent may seek a modification of the parenting order to address this issue. A parent seeking modification of the parenting order may have to retain an expert, such as a child psychologist, to support their request for modification of the parenting order. Alternative methods of resolution may include mediation or settlement conferences.

Since this is a very complicated issue, you should consult with an experienced attorney for an evaluation and advice on how to proceed concerning the modification of a parenting order.
