Houston Visitation Lawyer

Understanding Your Rights in Visitation Disputes

Visitation and child support problems are the most common issues that arise between divorced parents after the dissolution of marriage is final. At the Law Offices of Wendy Wood, we work closely with parents to make sure that they understand their rights and responsibilities with respect to their children and the other parent. If you need help resolving a problem with parenting time or visitation, contact us for a free consultation with an experienced Bryan and Houston visitation lawyer.

Many parents find that the standard visitation order — every other weekend and summer vacation for the noncustodial parent of a child in school — either is insufficient to meet the needs of their children or is subject to interference by the other parent. We can help you resolve those problems by giving you a good idea of what a court is likely to order under a given set of facts. We can also show you ways to compromise and settle visitation disputes on terms that work well for both parents and the children.

Increased visitation time and child support

Many parents find that a 50/50 custody arrangement will resolve visitation problems. Shared primary custody may also reduce child support obligations, but sometimes fathers would just as soon keep paying child support while getting better access to the kids. When this happens, the child can benefit from a higher standard of living in both residences if the mother would otherwise have to move to a less desirable neighborhood.

We also help parents subject to visitation conditions or supervision

If you're under a domestic violence protective order or have a documented history of chemical abuse or alcohol abuse, your visitation arrangements are probably highly restricted. We can help you get out from under supervision terms or other conditions, but first we need to show that you've made significant progress on your own problems. Texas family law attorney Wendy Wood is willing to work with you to help you achieve your goals for yourself and your children.
