Visitation Rights in Mission Viejo
Orange County Family Law Firm
If you have been denied
child custody rights, then you may be entitled to
visitation rights depending on a number of factors. In California, the best interests
and well-being of a child are of the utmost importance. As long as visitation
rights would not be detrimental to the best interests of the child then
the court must grant the non-custodial parent reasonable visitation.
Some factors to be considered by the court when determining child visitation rights:
- The child's safety, health and welfare
- The child's personal preference
- The child's age, maturity and special needs
- The parent's physical proximity to the child's primary residence
There are other factors that come into play when a court is deciding visitation
rights, but these are some of the more prominent issues. It is important
that you have legal assistance in this matter in order to prevent an undesirable
outcome of your visitation arrangements. Additionally, it is the responsibility
of the custodial parent to make the child available for visitation. Failure
to comply with visitation rights is punishable by contempt. In the case
that a teenage child refuses to go to visitation with their non-custodial
parent through no fault of the custodial parent, although it is their
responsibility to make the child available for visitation, it is unclear
as to how the parent will be able to force the child to visit.
