Mother denied visitation rights with 3-year-old son

According to reports a 23-year-old woman who was on the run from authorities was arrested at Universal Studios in Florida sometime in November 2012 for child endangerment, is seeking scheduled visitation with her son. Apparently even after the woman's 27-year-old boyfriend hit the boy in head hard enough to cause brain injury and, burnt his wrist and finger, the woman did not seek any medical treatment for the 3-year-old.

The woman recently requested scheduled visits with her son but, the presiding judge denied her request. However, she has been allowed to write to him. Florida parents in the middle of child custody and parenting time issues understand that heartache of not being able to see one's child. However, in certain cases, such as the case above, in the best interest of the child, visitation with the parent may not be appropriate.

The reality of separation and divorce is that children will not spend as much time which their parents as they did during a working relationship. It is important for parents to put the best of children ahead of their differences and, work at finding a meaningful solution and custody agreement. However, in some case a mutual agreement may not be possible.

Nevertheless, a relationship between a parent and a child is important for the growth and the development of the child. For any parent who is facing child custody or visitation issues should contact an experienced family law attorney to explore one's options and legal recourse and, try their utmost to be part of their children's lives.
