Visitation Rights Attorney in Long Island
Queens, Suffolk, Nassau Counties & Long Island Family Law Attorneys
After a divorce, 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 and divorce attorney who can properly represent your interests and protect your legal rights, whether you are a mother, 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.
