Visitation

Birmingham Visitation Lawyer

Set up a visitation schedule that works well for everyone.

Families are busy. Work, school, day care, sports, community, family and church activities take time and planning. When the parents are divorced or unmarried, the coordination of activities requires an extra degree of planning.

What was once referred to as “visitation” is sometimes called by the more involved (and accurate) term – parenting  or custodial time. Children need time to learn from and be cared for and loved by both parents.

  • There is no formula or standard in Alabama for how much time each parent has with a child.
  • Parenting time is determined on a case-by-case basis, depending on what is in the best interests of the child.
  • A stable, consistent routine is best. The court will look for a plan that shows continuity and stability.
  • As with all decisions involving children, the court will approve a custody plan that fits the child’s needs.

At our law firm, attorney Candi Peeples works with clients to ensure visitation rights are met, and both parents have sufficient parenting time.

Children need predictable, stable schedules in their lives. For children whose parents live in two different homes, this is especially important. Call 205-403-5577 or contact us by email to set up an appointment to discuss parenting time schedules.
