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.

For legal guidance and representation concerning your visitation rights, contact us at (407) 624-5344.

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.

    "Very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable."

    Attorney Hamilton is one of the best out there, I was previously taken advantage of by one of the best known big box law firms in Orlando so at my wits end when I came to her. She graciously agreed to handle my case and she made it a breeze. Her staff, Karl in particular is very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking good competent legal advice and representation!!!

    "She really fought for me."
    She helped me to get alimony after being married to an abusive man for 8 years. She didn't take any crap off of my ex or his attorney. She really fought for me. My alimony is only for 5 years but that is more than what other attorneys told me I could end up with. I am 38 and the other two attorneys I spoke with told me that I was young enough to get a job. I am very thankful for her and her hard work.

    "She was able to show me the light at the end of the tunnel."
    Ms. Hamilton has been and still is a wonderful Attorney to me. Ms. Hamilton has assisted my family 3 different occasions; 2 accident cases and family (child support issues) and I have been happy with the outcome of all 3 cases. She has worked extremely hard on my cases and even when I thought things weren't going the way I wanted them to, she was able to show me the light at the end of the tunnel. She took the time out to explain to me the things that were happening in my case to ensure that I understood them. I am more than confident in Ms. Hamilton's ability to handle any situation and trust her opinions on the decisions I should make. I would most definitely recommend Ms. Hamilton as an attorney, she knows the law and only wants what is truly best for her clients.

    "Attorney Hamilton answered all my questions and provided me with excellent counsel regarding my situation."
    Great Service! Attorney Hamilton answered all my questions and provided me with excellent counsel regarding my situation. The staff was very professional, kind and hospitable

    "Attorney Hamilton is very rational and caring at the same time."
    Attorney Hamilton provided me with professional, personalized, caring services and was there for me throughout the complexity of my case, which resulted in agreed-upon resolutions. I had the services of 2 other attorneys prior to obtaining the services of Attorney Hamilton. One Attorney for the original dissolution of my 30-year marriage, and another attorney to assist me with the court proceeding for the breaches to the terms of the marriage settlement agreement. Needless to say after 5 years, at times, it almost felt hopeless, until, I obtained the skilled, experienced, professional services of Attorney Hamilton. She was always supportive, focused and again I want to say professional as she represented me throughout this process. Attorney Hamilton is very rational and caring at the same time. What I have learned through this experience is that when it comes complex breaches in interpersonal relationships, no matter how knowledgeable you might think you are; the LAW is the only thing that matters, when it comes to the Family Law System. Attorney Hamilton knows the laws and when she enters a court of law on your behalf; the court system recognizes her knowledge of legal protocol on multiple levels. Attorney Hamilton is the best of the best. I'm forever thankful for her service
    - Breda

    "Paulette Hamilton saved my life."
    Paulette Hamilton saved my life, I mean every little penny. I'm happy I used her as my lawyer. Now I have my house and my daughter because of her service and her advice. Thank you for your support and God bless you more and more.

    "she truly is a shining example of what it means to be the hands and feet of Goodness."
    Paulette Hamilton, Esquire, is exclusively a 5-star attorney. She and her staff are helpful, patient, caring and empathetic to the human conditions of need, pain, stress, and burden.

    Since meeting and entrusting her, my life has turned drastically in the right direction. Without her diligence and advisement, I would still be exactly in the spot I was in four short months ago.

    Although I entered myself into a financial crisis, in both controllable and uncontrollable ways, she helped me right myself and educated me to exact my focus and energy on being a financially solvent consumer-citizen. I cannot thank her enough for that blessing; she truly is a shining example of what it means to be the hands and feet of Goodness.
