Norfolk Child Visitation Attorney
All parents care about protecting the best interests of the children, but often in divorces and separations, the parents do not agree about how to best protect the children’s interests. Especially when the parents disagree about the specifics regarding visitation schedules, it is important to negotiate the terms of visitation with an experienced attorney who can work with both parents to negotiate an agreement that will be equitable to everyone involved, acceptable in the eyes of the court and drafted to protect the rights and best interests of the children.
At Goldblatt, Cohen & Legum, P.C., we have been representing Virginia clients in visitation and other divorce and separation-related matters since 1927. Our Norfolk child visitation lawyers bring exceptional experience and a strong commitment to obtaining efficient, favorable outcomes for our clients. We will take the time to listen to you, come up with a strategic approach for visitation arrangements and aggressively represent you in creating a parenting plan that will work for you and your family.
Whenever possible, we work to craft all of the visitation and parenting time agreements through negotiation rather than litigation. This is generally a more amicable and efficient approach. Of course, when visitation cannot be determined through negotiations, we have the expertise and experience to handle your case in court.
A parenting plan is an agreement between divorcing or separating parents that outlines the details surrounding the care of the children. As your law firm, we will guide and advise you throughout the process thereby creating a parenting plan that takes into account all of the relevant factors, including:
- Visitation times: A good parenting plan will clearly detail the exact times that each parent will have the child, including summers and other vacations, holidays, weekends and other important times and events.
- Exchange details: Another important consideration is exactly when and where the parents will exchange the child to transition parenting times.
- Grandparent visitation: Complications can arise when grandparents get involved and assert their rights to visitation. We will help you negotiate a parenting plan that includes the grandparents, as appropriate.
