Whether you're a mother - a father, you have a good chance of winning your child custody case. Your children's well-being is important to you, which is why I want to help you obtain custody of your kid or children. What matters is that you get it properly the first time.
If you are dissatisfied with the original output, modifying it afterward is difficult. Sure, there are several options for filing court appeals, but they all take a significant amount of time, which you might be spending with your children.
Understanding the child custody and visitation laws in California is critical for anybody living in the state who is involved in a child custody dispute. Here's a simple guide to help you understand Child Visitation regulations:
Issues with child visitation arise out of situations where both legal guardians of the child are no longer acting like a couple. Visitation refers to how the child's time will be divided between both legal guardians. It is usually decided by the court system, especially in cases where each guardian is asking for the same amount of visitation.
If you are filing for visitation, the best thing to do is contact a Family Law Attorney to mediate for the maximum amount of child visitation you wish to have.
The primary reason for this is that child custody battles tend to be very strenuous and emotional. Alleviating you of the confrontation about child custody matters with your ex-spouse is a huge relief when dealing with such a sensitive issue.
Supervised visitation is when courts find that the child's well-being is compromised by spending time alone with a parent. If this is mandated, it is required that the adult meets with the child while another adult, court employee, or private agency is present.
Unsupervised visitation is granted to the parent who does not spend more than half their time with the child. Unsupervised visitation should be highly detailed and planned to avoid arguments and confusion- the more specific, the better.
Common visitation schedules leave the parent with less than half of their time with the child- seeing the child every other weekend and alternating holidays. Common variations include a pickup and drop-off once during the week by the parent with the least amount of visitation.
