Visitation Rights Attorney in New York
Queens, Suffolk, Nassau Counties & Long Island Family Law Attorney
divorce in Long Island or the surrounding areas, one parent often has sole
custody of the child or children. Usually, the non-custodial parent will have
visitation rights, which may be agreed upon by the parents or ordered
by the court. It is also becoming increasingly common for
grandparents to seek visitation with grandchildren.
Visitation issues can be legally complex and emotionally difficult. This
is why we highly recommend involving a family law attorney who can properly
represent your interests and protect your legal rights, whether you are a
father, grandparent or third party seeking visitation. The Virdone Law Firm,
P.C. represents clients throughout Nassau County, Queens County, and Suffolk
County as well as the surrounding communities. We are recognized professionals
in this area and with the stakes as important as the well-being of children
the need for such experience cannot be overemphasized.
It is when dealing with custody and visitation that our firm has the greatest
hope for amicable resolution. Rarely do children benefit from heated battles
between their parents. We are therefore particularly cognizant of our
roles as counselors at law in this area; we strive to counsel and serve
the best interest of the child. In fact, the determination that will be
made by the court will always be what is in the best interest of the child,
so we find it prudent and efficient to work toward that goal from the
beginning. The determination of what is best for the child, however, is
a process that often involves analysis of the situation and can include
testimony from expert witnesses, including mental health professionals
who have met with the child.
Even after visitation rights are determined, problems may arise in the
future. Some parents do not respect the visitation schedule for reasons
ranging from wanting to hurt the other spouse to feeling that the welfare
of the child is in danger when with the non-custodial parent. An attorney
at our firm can help with these matters as well. We have vast experience
dealing with all areas involving visitation and there are few other areas
of law where that matters as much.
