The Right to Visitation for a Non-Custodial Parent
In divorce, child custody is often decided as part of the divorce agreement or court order. The parent who has primary custody of minor children is known as the “custodial parent,” while the other parent is the “non-custodial parent.” The non-custodial parent will have visitation rights to see their child, and in many situations, the custodial parent will infringe upon those rights out of spite or anger. When your ex-spouse is interfering with your right to see your children, you have the ability to utilize the law to enforce your visitation rights. The Los Angeles visitation rights attorneys at Saxton Family Law will help you utilize the legal system to ensure that you are allowed to spend time with your children.
Visitation for Unmarried Parents and Other Relatives
In some situations, parents of a child or of multiple children were not married. Just because a couple wasn’t married does not mean that a parent has any less of a right to spend time with their child. If you are a biological or adoptive parent of a child, you have a right to spend time with that child unless a court has ruled otherwise. In addition, there are also some situations where a non-parent may have a right to visitation with a child. Grandparents, step-parents, and other family members can, under special circumstances, seek visitation privileges from the courts. If you are being deprived of your right to spend time with a child, speak to one of our Los Angeles visitation rights attorney today about enforcing your legal right to parent your child.
