Visitation Effective & Efficient Representation

Dallas Visitation Attorney

Protecting Your Time with Your Child

Texas law favors a standard possession schedule when parties divorce or separate. This means that the law encourages both parents to spend time with their children, no matter who the children live with.

A parent who is restricting visitation or is flat-out denying you visitation is probably in violation of a court order. If no court order is in place, we can help you obtain one to ensure that you don’t miss spending valuable time with your children.

Visitation Orders & Agreements

The technical term for visitation is “access and possession.” Possession refers to time in custody of the child, and access means you can contact your child and see their medical, school, or other important records.

Here are a few things to keep in mind about visitation:

  • Either the custodial or non-custodial parent may file for a visitation order.
  • The most common type of visitation order is the Standard Possession Order, or SPO. It grants the non-custodial parent custody on the first, third, and fifth weekends of the month, as well one month during the summer. It may also include visiting time during the week. Parents may request some other arrangement.
  • If both parents agree to a change in visitation times or custody, that is acceptable, but the courts will not enforce a private agreement; it’s up to the parents to follow it.
  • If parents have a disagreement about visitation or custody, they must follow the existing visitation order, if there is one.
