Katy Visitation Rights Lawyer
Protecting Your Child in Family Law Cases
Are you someone that has maintained a parent-child relationship with a child that is not legally your own? Grandparents, great grandparents, stepparents, or other caring adults may be eligible for visitation rights. In any case involving a child, the court will consider the wishes of the child’s legal guardians in combination with what is in the best interests of the child. At Fischer Law Firm P.C., our visitation rights lawyer can champion on your behalf to help to secure visitation rights with the child you care about.
Call (346) 444-1050 to speak with a lawyer that can advocate on your behalf.
Securing Visitation Rights
Unfortunately, no one besides the child’s legal parents has the automatic right to see or visit with a child. Access to a child must be cleared by a parent unless the court has determined otherwise. Visitation rights mean that you have the legal right to contact or visit with a child outside of the general permission of the parents. Obtaining visitation rights can be difficult.
To get visitation, it must be proven that it is in the child’s best interest and:
- The child’s parents are divorced;
- The child has been abused or neglected;
- The child’s relationship with their parent had been terminated by the court;
- The parent is in jail, incompetent, or deceased; or
- The grandparents have provided a home for the child for at least six months.
If you are a grandparent or other loved one that had sustained a family relationship with a child and would like to secure visitation, speak with an attorney as soon as you can. Visitation rights cases involve gathering evidence and proof that the child has a sustained relationship with you that would result in their emotional distress if ended. Our skilled family law attorney in Katy can navigate these complicated waters with skill and compassion to secure the best possible outcome.
