Affordable Child Custody Lawyers With Extensive Courtroom Experience
In Michigan, child visitation agreements are part of a normal divorce process when children are involved – but also with unmarried couples as well. When child custody is decided and visitation is awarded, one parent will be given either supervised or unsupervised visitation. Supervised visitation is generally awarded when a parent is seen as “unfit” because of having a mental illness, heath issue, alcohol or drug dependency or criminal history. Our Michigan visitation lawyers in wayne county, oakland or Macomb county will help you achieve a parenting time schedule that makes sense for you and your child.
Your parenting time schedule is the calendar that defines when your child will be with you and when your child will be with the other parent. Your parenting time schedule will say where your child will be on holidays, extended vacations, spring breaks and school breaks. Non-custodial parents are generally granted visitation rights. Some visitation options that may be available to parents are as follows:
Co-parenting (where each parent has child 50% of the time)
Summer and extended-vacation visitation
What is Supervised Visitation?
Many situations in domestic cases such as divorce, paternity, or guardianship actions can lead to a situation where a court orders that one party's visitation with his or her minor children be supervised by a professional third party. A parent who believes a child is in imminent physical or emotional danger due to parenting time or contact with the other parent may ask the court to restrict such contact, and the court will hold a hearing on the issue. A judge may order supervised visitation for many reasons such as:
1) when there is a history or allegations of domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, or substance
2) when there are parenting concerns or mental illness; or
3) when there is a parental threat of abduction.
Please be advised that alcohol and drug addiction can play a role in supervised child visitation being ordered by the court.
