Contact a Divorce Lawyer & Certified Mediator

Child custody and visitation rights can be complicated, and it is not uncommon for feelings to get hurt or families to be caught in the middle of custody battles as they undergo this process.

At the office of Shelly D. Fowler, Attorney at Law, Ms. Fowler understands that this time in your life may be difficult, but with the assistance of an understanding and trusted attorney, you could see a favorable resolution to your case.

If you want to create, dispute, or enforce the custody arrangements and visitation rights for your child, discuss your requests with Shelly Fowler in a free consultation!

Child custody arrangements can be in the form of:

  • Conservatorship - Under conservatorship, the rights of the parent will be divided between sole conservatorship (where one parent makes the majority of decisions regarding the child's basic needs) and joint conservatorship (where both parents have decision-making ability.)
  • Possession and access - If one parent has physical custody of the child, the non-custodial parent will have to abide by visitation regulations to have access to the child.

Enforcing Visitation

In your final divorce decree, the regulations for visitation were clearly defined - and this often dictates which parent has full or legal custody of the child and the visitation schedule for the non-custodial parent. In some circumstances, specific requests for child protective services or supervised visits may be enforced.

If the custodial or non-custodial parent is not following the guidelines outlined in your divorce decree, Shelly Fowler can help enforce the visitation schedule. Or, if the other parent is not cooperating with the visitation schedule, she can also help you assert your right to see your child.
