Legal Advice

There are certain conditions you need to fulfil if you want to win child visitation rights. First of all, you have to be a parent. If you are an unmarried dad, you will need to furnish proof of being a parent by showing a court order or through a voluntary acknowledgement of paternity. If you cannot demonstrate any valid proof of any kind, you lose your legal rights.

Your first job is to establish yourself as one of the parents, either through a DNA paternity test or birth certificate or by court order. After that, your job is to locate your family court and local probate. Otherwise, seek out the family court and local probate of the county where your kids reside.

 

How to Get Visitation Rights?

 

Every parent has a legal right to visit and spend time with his/her kids, even if he/she is estranged/divorced from the other parent. When a couple gets divorced or separated, one parent wins the child custody battle while the other earns reasonable child visitation rights, unless he or she is a convicted felon or child abuser or substance addict.

Visitation rights basically mean the right of a parent to meet his/her kid/s face to face and spend time with them, if he/she loses the custody battle.

 

Ask the people at the family court and local probate about the papers required for filing for visitation rights. This might be for a motion or other things. After filing the form, you have to serve your ex. Be reasonable and realistic about your child visitation demands.

After the court grants special visitation rights to you, you may find that what starts off as day visits or supervised visits gradually transforms into visitations over longer stretches of time.
