Orange County Custody & Visitation Lawyer

Visitation Rights in Orange County

If you are facing the issue of child visitation in Orange County, attorney Marc E. Mitzner is committed to guide you through the process. He is a lawyer with over a decade of experience in pursuing all types of child visitation arrangements. 

Child visitation rights is an approach that does not give a parent all of the rights associated with child custody but does give that parent the opportunity to spend time with their child or children.  Sometimes, the Court deems this is the best action in keeping with the "best interests of the child" when the parent has had a history of drugs or alcohol abuse, domestic violence, is in prison or on probation, is in an unsuitable living arrangement for a child or other barriers to custody.  Visitation also may be supervised or unsupervised - whatever the Court deems more appropriate.

The Necessity to Keep Visitation Record

It should be noted that even in supervised visitation; these visitation periods may increase over time or be modified. For that reason it is well for both parents to keep a record of the length and quality of each visit.

In Orange County, the time that a parent shares with their child may be an important ingredient when child support and visitation rights are being calculated or considered.  Because of this, it is suggested that parents keep records such as in a notebook, calendar or diary detailing these timeframes.  When or if the Orange County Court may need to establish or change the order regarding visitation, child custody or child support - theses records may greatly affect the outcome of your case.

Stepped-Up Visitation

Sometimes in cases of paternity or other cases where the child has not had the opportunity in the beginning of their lives to know and be in the presence of one of their parents, stepped-up visitation is appropriate.  It is a way to define the visitation on an increasing gradient of time spent with that parent. In this manner the Orange County Court assures that the child will be slowly introduced to the parent and the parent will be eased into the parenting situation.  Stepped - up visitation usually starts with only an hour or two per week.  Then the process is monitored with the ideal being, the time spent is gradually increased until a standard arrangement is reached.  We are experienced in assisting clients through this process of stepped up visitation.

No matter what form of visitation you are seeking, attorney Marc E. Mitzner is committed to ease the way and help you attain your visitation goals.  He has practiced in the family law Courts of Orange County for over a decade and is respected in those Courts for his knowledge and dedication.  Contact us today for your free evaluation!
