DOING THE BEST FOR YOUR CHILDREN
It is the right of all parents to be allowed to visit and maintain a relationship with their child regardless of the problems or issues the parents may have with each other. It is important to understand that although the couple may no longer love each other, this does not mean the child should be isolated from either parent or used against either as leverage or as a punishment.
Visitation issues may not always be easy and order may need to be established by the court as well as ensuring each parent abides by such orders.
Additionally, visitation may need to be monitored by a specialist or a family member depending on the relationship of parent and child.
Some parents may not have seen the child for many years, and a reunification process will have to be implemented before the child and parent can be left to visit alone.
There are many factors the court will consider and which should be advocated for when determining visitation rights for non-custodial parent.
