Jacksonville Visitation Attorney: Disputes
Ironing Out Visitation Disputes in Jacksonville
Divorce is a very stressful time, even more so when minor children are involved. Decisions must be made concerning child custody, child support and visitation. It's common for the parents to not agree with each other on all the issues, but those involving children can be especially stressful. As a family law attorney at my firm, Charles E. Willmott, P.A. in Jacksonville, I am experienced and knowledgeable in assisting clients navigate the stormy waters of divorce agreements and ironing out disagreements, including visitation disputes.
In some cases, a court order regarding visitation is not being adhered to by the other parent, making it difficult to spend time with the children as ordered. There could be a failure to pick up or drop off the children at the scheduled time or other problems. Parental alienation may have led to the child or children refusing to visit. If you are facing any of these situations, call me at my firm so I can discuss the situation and how to get it resolved, legally.
Since 2008, Florida law has changed some of its language pertaining to divorce and child custody. Now the mother and father are referred to as a parent, rather than primary custodial parent and secondary custodial parent. This helped to effectively remove any misconceptions about which parent was more important or had more authority. It is now required that spouses who are divorcing or separating lay out detailed parenting plans regarding how the minor children will be raised, along with a clear description of time sharing with the children and parents.
