Protecting Your Visitation Rights
Work with Our Dedicated Mason City Family Law Attorney
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.
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.
