San Antonio Child Visitation Attorney
In Texas, it is assumed that parents will share custody of their children following a divorce. However, this is not always the case for a number of reasons. If one parent is granted custody, the other parent will still be granted visitation rights. At the Law Firm of Mysti Murphy, our San Antonio child visitation lawyer will work closely with you to help develop a visitation schedule that meets both your needs and the needs of your child.
Dedicated Child Visitation Lawyer
Our San Antonio family law firm will handle your child custody issues with compassion and understanding. We will listen carefully to your concerns so we can help you meet your goals and objectives. The Texas Family Code provides a standard visitation schedule following a divorce and the determination of child custody. The standard visitation schedule allows for overnight visits on the first, third and fifth weekends of each month, as well as alternate holidays and an extended period of time over the summer.
This schedule is not set in stone and can serve as a starting point for parents who wish to develop their own schedule. Another schedule is the 2/2/3 Custody Schedule. In this custody schedule, one parent has the child for two days, the other parent has the child for the next two days, and then the child goes back to the parent for a three day weekend. It ends up working out that each parent has two days with the child during the week and the parents alternate with a long weekend.
Another example of a shared visitation schedule is alternating weeks of custody and is the simplest shared parenting schedule. We can work with parents to develop a plan through informal negotiations or through mediation and alternative dispute resolution . In either case, the schedule is subject to the approval of the court, which generally accepts these plans as long as the plan is in the best interest of the child. You can rely on us to help you reach an agreement that benefits both you and your child.
