Orlando Visitation Rights Attorneys

Resolving Parenting Issues for Mothers & Fathers in Orlando

As a parent, you may disagree with your child’s other parent as to how a parenting plan should be arranged. You may also be a parent who wishes to modify a current parenting plan to reflect substantial changes in circumstances, whether those circumstances are yours or your child’s. Having visitation rights grants you the right to spend time with your child. In Florida’s current terms, this is referred to as parenting time. Arrangements must be decided as a requirement to divorce or when a father has won a paternity case. You may also change a current parenting plan by requesting a modification.

In any of the above situations, getting legal help from a knowledgeable attorney familiar with the parenting plan process is vital. At The Law Office of Paulette Hamilton, P.A., we are well-versed in this matter. Our Orlando visitation rights lawyers can provide the representation you need to work out a parenting plan that works for you, enforce a parenting plan where your rights have been denied, or help you seek modifications to an existing plan.

Florida’s Stance on Visitation Rights

It is generally held in the state of Florida that children should have continuing and frequent contact with both parents. This is considered to be in the best interests of the child unless some reason should advise against it, such as a parent’s history of abuse. In keeping with this policy, the courts require parents to create a plan that allows each parent to have access to the child on a regular and scheduled basis.

At The Law Office of Paulette Hamilton, P.A., we can help you create such a plan so that it meets the needs of both parents and children as well as the court’s requirements.

How Visitation Is Determined

In creating a parenting plan, the courts will look at various factors that can influence how visitation rights should be arranged.

These factors include:

  • The child’s preference, if they are mature enough
  • The proximity of the two households as well as their proximity to the child’s school or daycare
  • How much each parent will encourage the child to have a close relationship with the other parent
  • Whether parental responsibility will be shared
  • How able each parent is to provide a stable environment and routine for the child
  • How involved each parent is with the child’s school and extra-curricular activities
  • How important it is to maintain continuity if the child has been in one stable environment
  • How likely a parent is to remain in communication with the other parent as to the child’s school, activities, and other issues

Once a parenting plan has been established, if you are denied your legal rights by the other parent, you may need to take legal action. Our firm is here to protect your rights.

On the other hand, you and your child’s parent may make changes to the plan. Modifications are not enforceable unless they are approved by the court. Should you need to relocate, this is another issue that can affect your parenting plan and must be handled through the court.
