Yonkers Child Visitation Attorney

Our Yonkers Lawyer Works to Prepare You and Your Family for Life After Divorce

Upon settling a child custody agreement, you may find yourself in the position of needing to also negotiate child visitation arrangements. Courts generally award visitation rights to the parent who does not have physical custody of the children, except in extenuating circumstances. For example, if a spouse has a history of domestic violence, he or she may have difficulty attempting to receive visitation rights. Our trustworthy and compassionate Yonkers divorce attorney is prepared to help you negotiate all aspects of your child visitation arrangement.

Visitation rights are usually granted to:

  • Fathers or mothers
  • Grandparents
  • Brothers and sisters
  • Step-siblings

Individuals currently not allowed to receive visitation rights include:

  • Aunts and uncles
  • Cousins
  • Former partners who are not the child's biological or legal parent

Protect Your Rights as a Parent

The court will seek to establish a pattern of visitation that promotes the most frequent contact possible between the children and each parent. Especially in the case where one parent is granted sole physical custody of the children, the best arrangement for the family is often one that provides the opportunity for positive relationships to continue to foster between the non-custodial parent and the children. Should you feel the need to revisit the terms of your arrangement, it is possible to do so outside of court.

Child visitation arrangements sometimes need to be altered due to one parent's move, a job change, or other factors that may affect the amount of quality time he or she can spend with the children. However, if it is not possible for you to come to an agreeable arrangement outside of court, our services can be retained in order to represent your interests through the formal child visitation modification proceedings. Our Yonkers visitation lawyers are here to help you.
