Arlington Family Lawyer

Arlington Visitation Attorney

Visitation refers to time a non-custodial parent gets to spend with his or her children after a divorce. The institution of visitation allows non-custodial parents and their children the chance to still be a meaningful part of each other’s lives. If you are going through a divorce, you may have many questions about Texas visitation and child custody laws as they relate to you and your spouse. In this case, you would do well to contact an Arlington family lawyer as soon as possible.

In most cases, parents are given joint custody of their children. Still, one parent usually has primary custody—this means that one parent will normally care for the children most of the time. The non-primary parent will have visitation rights. Texas law has a standard formula when it comes to determining visitation rights called “standard possession order,” or SPO. This formula doesn’t always work for every parental situation, though. In this case, you and your spouse may need to work out a special plan that will satisfy both of your needs as parents and as individuals. A good Arlington family lawyer can help you devise such a plan that will still ensure protection of your children’s best interests.
