Visitation Problems? Pick Porter!

Visitation Rights Lawyer in Jacksonville

Protecting Your Right to Be with Your Child

Issues regarding parental rights to visitation can quickly become complex, which makes it vital to work with a knowledgeable Jacksonville divorce attorney from Jason K.S. Porter, P.A. We have helped many parents reach fair and equitable visitation agreements that work well for both parents and their children.

One of the most important parts of the child custody determination in a divorce proceeding is the right of each parent to have equitable visitation and access to their children. Recent changes in Florida law have made the right to visitation more balanced for fathers; however, the court always determines such matters based upon the best interests of the child.

Now known as time-sharing, many factors will be considered when establishing a parent's visitation rights, including:

  • The parent's work schedule
  • His or her relationship with the child
  • How much time the parent can spend with the child
  • The experience the parent has in bringing up a child
  • The length of time at and stability of the child's current residence
  • The willingness of the custodial parent to allow the nonresidential parent to visit the child
  • How far away the parents live and work from each other
  • The preference of the child

Determining a Fair and Reasonable Visitation Schedule

When one parent is named as the "primary custodial parent" in the divorce, the other parent is given "fair and reasonable" visitation. This language is a bit vague, as what is "fair and reasonable" to one parent may not be so to the other parent. It is crucial that the relationship between parents does not become irretrievably broken over this issue.
