Child  Visitation Lawyers in Houston, Texas

When a divorce or separation involves a child, a parenting plan addressing their conservatorship must be presented to the court. If the parents are able to reach an agreement on the custody, visitation, and child support, this parenting plan will be submitted to the court for approval. If an agreement is not reached, then a trial will have to occur to establish one. Ultimately, a family court judge will review and approve a parenting plan that preserves the best interests of the child.

Forming a Parenting Plan and Establishing Visitation Orders

Ideally, the parenting plan will be one of joint legal custody, providing the children with as much time possible with both parents. However, there are instances were a parent may only have the children for less than half of the time, needing the establishment of visitation orders. Visitation may vary depending on the best interests of the children, financial and social situations of the parent, and other factors.

If there are parenting issues involving drug or alcohol abuse, domestic violence, neglect, and other factors that may pose a threat to the children, a parent can petition to have the visitation orders modified. This can lead to a limitation on access, visitation, and may even award sole custody to one parent or guardian.

The first step to creating a parenting plan should be to speak with qualified Houston visitation attorneys who will protect you and your child’s best interests.
