Protecting the Rights of Noncustodial Parents in Los Angeles & Ventura County

California courts have made it clear: Whenever possible, the parents shall each maintain a relationship with their children after divorce, even if the visitation must be supervised.

If visitation rights have become an issue in your divorce, Feinberg & Waller, APC is ready to protect your parenting rights. We work with clients on both sides of the visitation issue. Our attorneys have extensive experience handling parenting schedules and custody issues in jurisdictions throughout Southern California, and they have helped clients with parenting time issues when one parent lives in another state or outside of the United States.

Experience in Joint Physical Custody Cases

Co-parenting is often favored in court cases regarding children. If parents have joint physical custody, they need to determine how they will share time with their children. The ideal arrangement would be for the child or children to spend exactly 50% of their time with each parent. Practically speaking, this is very difficult. If both parents work, the complexity of dealing with two work schedules and a child’s school and extracurricular activities may mean that even if parents have joint physical custody, one parent may be the primary custodial parent and the other parent with less time receives visitation.

Our attorneys can help you assemble a comprehensive parenting or time-sharing plan. A formal plan does two things: It sets expectations, and it is enforceable. While California permits less detailed agreement, a comprehensive parenting time or visitation agreement helps to reduce conflict by making it clear to everyone, including a judge, what was agreed to.

Parenting Time is Important to Your Children’s Welfare

A comprehensive parenting time plan is best created in a cooperative atmosphere. Children thrive when they spend time with both parents and when those parents are positive and focused on the best interests of the children and not engaging in conflict.

When you and your child’s other parent take the time to develop a plan that details birthdays, holidays, vacations, camps, and other events important in your child’s life, it can help clarify for parents what is important. When developing this plan, it is crucial to plan for change. Your children will age, and what is an ideal plan when they are toddlers may not work as well when they are teens. By keeping your plan updated and matching your current circumstances, it can work better for you and your children.

Finding Visitation Plans That Work for Your Family

In the case of a parent with sole physical custody, it is still considered important for the child to spend time with their other parent, absent threats to the child. A visitation schedule may have to be creative, offering the other parent a combination of weekends, days of the week, school holidays, and other time to ensure that parent remains meaningful within their child’s life.

Cooperation is Essential

If you cannot agree on parenting time or a visitation schedule, a judge will impose a schedule based on the best interests of your children. This is less than ideal, and if possible, it is better if you and your child’s other parent work together to create a viable plan. You, not the judge, will have to live with it, so your plan is likely to better deal with the unique aspect of your family’s life.

If your child’s other parent is unwilling to work with you, our lawyers will help develop a compelling case for a plan that best addresses your child’s need and fully protects all your rights to time with your child or children.
