When it comes to your children, there is a lot on the line. Determining visitation rights is an emotional and stressful process, but you don’t have to face it alone. Unfortunately, one mistake can cause unnecessary stress, heartache, and years of lost time, which is why it is crucial to work with a lawyer who is specifically experienced in child visitation law.

We’ve seen how high the stakes are firsthand, and we know they can be even higher for some. This is the reason for our special focus on helping fathers who are facing uncertain situations, such as visitation schedules. While we can, and do, provide exceptional service to all our clients — regardless of their parental or marital status — we know that fathers often face higher adversity when entering family courts. In order to have the best chance at a favorable outcome in their case, particularly when it comes to visitation rights and other custody cases, fathers require an attorney who is uniquely experienced, as well as passionate about protecting their rights.

The process of filing a motion, going to court, facing a judge, and arguing your case is draining — not to mention time-consuming. You are already dealing with a highly stressful period in your life and teaching yourself the ins and outs of child visitation law on top of that is too much for most people. Attorney Judith Montgomery and the Atlanta Family & Immigration Law team are here to help you navigate this process and give you peace of mind while we fight for the best outcome possible.

Do I Need a Lawyer for Child Visitation?

If you are dealing with any situation that involves child visitation, you should speak to a lawyer. Technically, a parent can file the petition and attend the court hearing all on their own, but the fact of the matter is that child visitation cases can be extremely complicated. In order to have the best chance at a favorable outcome, you will want to have an experienced lawyer on your team.

What Should Be Included in a Visitation Agreement?

A child visitation agreement should leave nothing up for interpretation. It should contain a very clear and direct outline of the visitation schedule, particularly the days, times, holidays, etc. that will be included. There also needs to be clear information as to the specific rules during visitation.

How Is Child Visitation Determined?

As with all custody decisions, the law demands that the court rules based on the best interests of the child. If the children are at the age where they may voice their opinion, the court will likely take that into consideration as well. It is important to remember that the best interests of a child don’t always align with the wishes of one or both parents, but the child’s wellbeing is the most important factor.

How Do You Prove the Best Interests of the Child?

When determining the best interest of a child, the court will take into account all factors affecting their upbringing. If you are trying to prove that having custody or visitation rights will be in their best interest, you will need to show that the child’s physical and psychological well-being are your top priority.
