About Visitation in Long Island

Visitation is awarded to the parent who does not have custody of his or her children. This may occur after a divorce or legal separation, wherein one parent has custody of the child and the non-custodial parent wishes to spend time with the child or children. Typically, a visitation schedule will be agreed upon in order to standardize the time that the non-custodial parent will be able to spend with the children.

As a Long Island divorce attorney, I understand that coming to an arrangement regarding child custody and visitation may be difficult. After all, we’re talking about your child’s upbringing and future. The visitation arrangement will directly impact your child emotionally and will also affect you as a parent. Whether you are a mother or a father seeking visitation rights, are the custodial parent and need to address a situation where the non-custodial parent wants visitation rights, or if you are interested in a modification of an existing visitation arrangement, I can help. I have nearly two decades of experience as a family law lawyer and can apply my knowhow and resources to your case.

How Visitation Agreements are Made

A visitation schedule may be made inside or outside of the courtroom. In an uncontested divorce, spouses will agree upon a visitation schedule that works for them and their children. In a contested divorce in a Long Island family court, the judge will rule upon this matter depending on what is in the best interests of the child or children involved. No matter the particular manner in which you are dealing with a visitation dispute or agreement, it is important to have an attorney at your side to protect your interests.
