St. Charles Visitation Rights Lawyer

Helping protect your parental rights

Divorce does not terminate your parental rights and obligations. Though your marriage may be ending, you likely want your relationship with your children to continue to thrive. Missouri law recognizes this, as the law states all courts should consider that frequent, continuing and meaningful contact with both parents is in the best interest of the child, unless the court makes a specific finding otherwise. Even if only one parent receives custody of a child, under most circumstances the other parent will have significant visitation rights. Visitation plans can determine routine visitation rights, as well as summers or holidays. If you believe that custody or visitation will be an issue in your divorce, you always want to have an experienced family law attorney who can fight for your rights to see your children. To discuss your visitation rights issue with an experienced attorney, call Kenneth P. Carp today at (636) 947-3600.

Visitation Determinations in St. Charles

There are limited circumstances under which Missouri courts may find that awarding you visitation rights is not in the best interest of a child. Some situations include if you have been convicted of certain felony offenses or have a history of domestic violence. Often, one parent may try to fabricate instances of domestic abuse or threats in order to keep you from winning visitation rights. An attorney can help fight such false accusations against you.

If a court awards you visitation rights, the custodial parent may not interfere with the court order by denying you visits with your child, even if you do not pay child support. If you are wrongfully denied your rightful visitation rights, an experienced family lawyer can help you file a Family Access Motion, which requests that the court enforce its previous order against the custodial parent. As you can imagine, many different issues may arise regarding visitation rights, and an experienced visitation attorney can help you through every stage of your case.
