On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in child custody on Saturday, September 23, 2017.
All sorts of family law topics have been covered on this blog, such as child support and different challenges that can arise during the process of divorce. However, those related to child custody, such as visitation rights, can be especially emotional for parents and may also have a significant impact on children. We understand just how much is often at stake for parents in Jackson County and other Missouri communities who are struggling with this dilemma.
There are many reasons why you may have an even greater level of stress while fighting for your right to visit your child. For example, you could be worried that an unsuccessful outcome will bar you from spending time with a child you care deeply about. Unfortunately, these scenarios can also create lasting hardships for children, who may be unable to continue healthy relationships with their parents. Although it may feel overwhelming, it is particularly important for you to make sure that you are thoroughly prepared for any areas of concern and able to present your defense optimally in court.
When it comes to visitation, the court’s decision could affect you and your child for years to come, so it is extremely important for you to do what you can to protect the best interests of your child and prove that you should be granted the ability to visit them. Feel free to have a look at our page dedicated to child custody if you would like to read some more information that has to do with visitation rights.
