Child Custody—Father’s Visitation Rights
Contrary to popular belief, visitation rights are not inherently your rights at all. They are the rights of the child. The terms of visitation are something that you have to account for in a parenting plan, or fight for in court if you are denied access to your children. Neither parent has the “right” to see his or her children if it is deemed not in the children’s best interest. Since during a divorce or separation the Court makes decisions regarding child custody, support, and visitation rights in the perceived “best interests of the child,” it is sometimes necessary to demonstrate that it is in your child’s best interests to spend as much time with you as possible.
