Visitation

We Help Parents Stay Parents

Unless the court system has installed restrictions, Texas law dictates that all parents have the right to visitation. In the event that your spouse has custody rights, and is keeping you from visiting your children, contact the
Engel Law Firm. We’re experts at helping clients deal with
custody rulings, visitation problems,
paternity actions, enforcement and defending against allegations of child neglect or abuse. Having a lawyer at your side
can be difference between keeping your visitation rights as they were originally mandated, or losing access to your children.

Interference With or Restrictions on Visitation

After custody or visitation has been awarded, the other parent cannot refuse access to your children or deny you the right
to see them. The only way this can happen is if a judge or judge determines you are a danger to your child. Should this problem
occur, it’s best to document everything – preferably with a witness present.

When restrictions are placed on visitations, it’s usually due to some of the situations which are listed below:

  • Abandonment
  • Domestic violence
  • Alcohol or drug abuse
  • Emotional abuse
  • Relocating without proper consent
  • Putting unjust restrictions on the other parent’s access to the child

If you or someone you know is facing a visitation or any custody-related matter,
contact a Dallas family lawyer from our firm immediately to discuss your options.
