Child custody and visitation issues can be equally as emotional as divorce issues. You need an experienced Las Vegas family law attorney to help you through this process and to guide you towards making decisions that are in the best interest of your children – which should be your highest priority. The Hill Law Group is experienced in visitation issues and can help you accomplish this by guiding you through the complex legal process so you can focus on the needs of your family.
Nevada courts favor joint custody whenever possible and feel it is in the children’s best interest to have regular and frequent contact with both parents following a divorce. They also recognize the importance of maintaining regular and healthy relationships between children and parents who were never married.
A visitation attorney can help create a parenting plan which addresses visitation, as well as legal and physical custody issues. The custodial time for each parent will be spelled out regarding the dates and times for each parent to have visitation with the children. It will also include the location to exchange the children.
Visitation schedules seem to work best when they are as detailed as possible and The Hill Law Group is experienced in creating schedules that avoid conflict. They will go over the children’s school schedules, all holidays and any applicable religious holidays so your Parenting Plan can be as inclusive as necessary.
Time spent with a child is both a right and a responsibility. The Hill Law Group is passionate about visitation rights law and can help implement provisions to your parenting plan that will ensure time with the children is respected. These provisions include ensuring your visitation time will supersede any plans or activities of the child or other parent and instituting ramifications for canceling plans or not following through with scheduled visits – such as the party that did not comply with the visitation will be responsible for any additional child care expenses incurred by the other parent for the children.
Exchanges can be sticky situations, but your visitation attorney can help make them go as smoothly as possible. There are several provisions that can be added to your parenting plan to ensure this, by:
Holidays will be as detailed as possible, leaving little wiggle room for another parent to claim “it isn’t in our parenting plan” and withhold visitation or not share the holiday. The holiday schedule takes precedence over the regular visitation schedule.
Each parent is also usually allowed to take a yearly vacation with the children. The other parent must be notified in writing at minimum 14 days prior to the planned vacation, which cannot interrupt any scheduled holiday with the other parent. The vacationing parent must provide the other parent with their travel itinerary and phone numbers where they can be reached.
If there is no agreement between you and your spouse, the court is forced to create all visitation arrangements. As you can see, parenting plans are a wonderful way to help facilitate visitation while simultaneously avoiding any possible conflicts that may arise. The Hill Law Group is an experienced family law firm in Las Vegas that can assist you in preparing a parenting plan tailored to your specific situation and family needs.Shauna Hill
