Visitation Rights in Modesto

Nurturing Your Relationship with Your Child

The California Family Code §3100 outlines all laws pertaining to visitation by non-custodial parents in California. If you are a parent seeking visitation rights to your child, it is important that you work with a Modesto family law attorney who can fully review your case and help you determine the best course of legal action to take. At Scott Mitchell Law Incorporated, we will do everything in our power to help you receive a favorable outcome for your particular situation.

If you are a non-custodial parent seeking visitation, you may need to refer back to your divorce decree. Were you ordered a specific time restraint within which to see your child? Does the child visitation need to be conducted with the supervision of Social Services? It is important that you abide by all rules and regulations of your divorce decree in order to avoid serious legal complications; however, if you need assistance with making a custody or visitation modification in Modesto, Stockton or Turlock, then you need to work with our firm. Contact us at your earliest convenience!

Protecting Your Parental Rights

As a parent, you have rights to helping ensure the well-being of your child and contributing input as to how the child be raised. Most fathers who are non-custodial do not realize that they have paternal rights that need to be upheld and are protected under California law, especially if they have already established paternity on a legal document such as a birth certificate.

Court orders will normally outline specifics of the following for the visitation of non-custodial parents:

  • Days and times for visitation with each parent 
  • Times of day for exchanges 
  • Vacation time with children
  • Reflection of timeshare with kids, such as 50/50 timeshare

Some orders can even be modified to allow for parents to have an easier time with the visitation, such as having the children picked up and dropped off at school by the parents or exchanged at a day care or supervising agency such as Social Services.

Protecting Your Rights in Modesto, CA

Sometimes, custodial parents will withhold the visitation of the children from non-custodial parents. This unfortunate circumstance is usually to "get back" at the other parent and sadly pulls the children into the middle of an adult argument. If you feel that your visitation rights are being violated or that your children would be better off under your full custody, it is important that you contact our firm. Our team will fight aggressively for your rights and help you retain the family structure that can benefit your children.
