Protecting Your Visitation Rights

Work with Our Dedicated Mason City Family Law Attorney

Visitation-McGuire Law Firm

When a couple divorces, one of the issues that must be addressed is the subject of visitation rights for the child or children. Under Iowa law, both parents have a right to liberal visitation rights so as to ensure the child is able to maintain physical and emotional contact with both parents. This also encourages the parents to share in the responsibilities and rights of raising their child.

If the divorce calls for joint custody, then both parents have custody of the child and a schedule must be worked out that will work for the entire family. If one parent has primary custody, with the other allowed visitation, then a suitable schedule must be worked out for the benefit of all. If you find yourself in a situation where visitation has become an issue that is not resolving, you should consult with a Mason City visitation attorney who has experience helping parents with their divorce and visitation matters.
