Are you being kept from seeing your child? Has your situation changed since a previous custody order? If you are not getting enough time with your child, call Rhode Island Child Visitation Attorney Elisha Morris. She will fight for your visitation rights.
First Child Custody Order
Rhode Island believes both parents have a right to see their children unless extreme circumstances make it dangerous for the child to see one parent. A Rhode Island Child Visitation Attorney can help you get your rightful visitation time. The creation of a custody order will guarantee your right to see your kids. Rhode Island family courts always rule what they believe is in the best interest of the child.
If you are the father, the first step may be to establish paternity. About half of Rhode Island’s babies are born without the mother putting the father’s name on the birth certificate. You are still entitled to time with your child. Rhode Island Child Visitation Attorney Elisha Morris can tell you more during a free consultation.
Child Custody Modification
If you already have a custody order, and you want to change it, a Rhode Island Child Visitation Attorney can help. Rhode Island allows custody orders to be modified if a significant change has taken place.
Here are some reasons to change an order:
One parent is violating the custody order
The child wants a custody change
One parent is no longer properly caring for the child
One parent is now better able to care for a child
A change in living situation
A change in employment schedule
Again, remember the courts always rule what they believe is in the best interest of the child. A Rhode Island Child Visitation Attorney has experience in presenting custody cases.
Visitation Schedule Enforcement
What if you have legal visitation, but the other parent still isn’t letting you see your child? A family court judge can hold the violating parent in contempt of court. After being found in contempt, she could be court ordered to reimburse you for all legal expenses. Additional, the judge may award you extra “make-up” time with your child. If the other parent continues to violate, she could get thrown in jail.
Rhode Island Child Visitation Attorney Elisha Morris will aggressively defend your rights and make sure you get the visitation time you and your child deserve.
