In South Carolina, our legislators have determined that every child is entitled to the companionship of both of their parents. This means that the non-custodial parent is usually granted visitation rights unless there is a legitimate threat on the safety of the child. If you and your former spouse are unable to agree on a visitation schedule, it is prudent to retain our Mt Pleasant divorce lawyer who can mediate and help the parents come to a reasonable solution with the best interests of the child or children in mind.
A visitation schedule determines the following:
If there is a dispute about visitation, a guardian ad litem may be appointed to the child in order to independently investigate any issues or claims that have arisen. At Shaw Law Firm, LLC, we can provide this representation for you.
Visitation rights can be modified through the court if there is a change in circumstances, if a parent prohibits the child from visiting with the other parent, or if a parent interferes with scheduled visitation. At Shaw Law Firm, LLC, our family law lawyers can help whether you are negotiating a visitation schedule or seeking to enforce one that has been established.
We are dedicated to protecting the best interests of you and your children and will work hard to advocate for your rights and interests in and out of the courtroom.
