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
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.
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.
