Child Visitation Attorney in Granite Bay

Retaining a Lawyer Is Important in Your Visitation Case

When a married couple separates, the court’s main concern is to establish and maintain continuing contact for any children involved with both parents, unless it does not serve the children’s best interests. In cases where equal custody between parents is not possible, the non-custodial parent may be granted visitation rights.

Myers Family Law holds an excellent track record for helping families in matters involving child custody and child visitation. Contact us today to discuss your case.

Creating a Parenting Plan with Our Help

When parents first separate, it can seem overwhelming and upsetting to adhere to a new parenting schedule. However, parents are often surprised at how a parenting schedule can establish a sense of order and well-being for the children. This is why we recommend seeking a parenting program for the sake of you and your children. When you have this order in your lives, it establishes a sense of security, organization, and relief that was previously absent.

You will need to develop a parenting plan which will specify the days and time that each parent spends with the children. A successful parenting program will typically consist of both parent’s sacrificing their priorities for the children’s. If both parents are not willing to do this, an attorney will be crucial to you obtaining the time you deserve with your children.

At Myers Family Law, we want to help you regain order in your parental arrangement. Visitation may even be extended to persons other than the parents if the court agrees that they have an interest in the well-being of the children.

  • Some people who fall under these circumstances include:
  • Stepparents
  • Grandparents
  • Foster parents


Children are assigned visitation schedules based on the best interest of the child, and considerations are made regarding age, health, their emotional ties to each parent, each parent’s ability to care for the child, and their school, home, and recreational schedules.

The court may award reasonable visitation, where there is no set schedule for when the children will be with each parent and parents are able to work out visitation on their own; scheduled visitation, where there will be a detailed visitation plan to prevent conflicts between parents; or supervised visitation, where the children’s well-being requires that one or both parents are supervised during visits, or when a parent hasn’t seen his/her children in a while and they need to become more familiar with each other.
