Pitt and Jolie form visitation agreement with conditions

When a relationship is in turmoil, the door is open for all manner of emotional and even physical conflicts. And when feelings boil over, it is all too easy to lash out at someone you love. Unfortunately, if the party on the other end of an unfortunate incident happens to be your child, it is possible that there could be an intervention on behalf of the authorities.

What are some considerations for visitation with infants?

When you and your ex are working out the time-sharing portion of your parenting plan, there are a variety of factors that must be taken into account. One of the most important factors is the child's age. As you are no doubt aware, a child's needs change as he or she gets older. And a custody or visitation schedule that is appropriate for a 16-year-old is not nearly the same as that for an infant or toddler.

'Tis the season for getting along for the children's sake

Let's face it, while the intent of the holidays is for people to get together and joyously celebrate, this time of year can be extremely stressful. And sadly, it is also a time where family conflicts can bubble to the surface, causing conflicts and hard feelings. And this can be especially true in families of divorce.

Tardiness is a violation of your visitation agreement

You check your watch and feel worried. Time passes, and you grow more and more apprehensive and agitated. Finally, well after the agreed upon time, your ex arrives with your children in tow. And this is not the exception; this is the rule. Every week your ex picks up the children in accordance with visitation terms of your custody and every week, the children are returned late.

Time-sharing schedules are a required part of parenting plans

In Florida, the term "time-sharing" is used to describe what is often referred to as visitation or custody. This term describes how your child's time will be divided between you and the child's other parent. A time-sharing schedule is a required part of every parenting plan.

Legitimate reasons for modifying visitation

Sometimes after a divorce has been finalized, a parent may become dissatisfied with the terms contained in his or her child custody agreement. As such, he or she may want to have the agreement modified. But it is important to remember that the court has its reasons for rendering its decisions regarding visitation and will only consider causes it considers legitimate as the basis for alterations. Likewise, the court is likely to reject a request that it feels is not in the best interests of the child.

Make your parenting plan with an eye on the future

Typically, when a couple divorces, it is because it is the best option available. But it is important to understand that the decisions that are made during the divorce process can have long-term effects. And although asset division is finalized once the final decree is signed, issues regarding child custody and visitation may continue until a child reaches adulthood.

What can help a father optimize visitation time?

If you are a recently divorced father who has been granted visitation rights, you may be trying to figure out how to make your new arrangements work. You may even feel a little apprehensive about how your divorce will affect your relationship with your children. After all, you will now be seeing your children according to a prearranged schedule, rather than every day at home.

Parents can establish visitation schedules together

As it pertains to family law and divorces, the word visitation is often held in contempt. It serves as a reminder that you are not always involved in your child's life and that only at specified times and dates are you allowed to interact or visit with your child. This mentality is good for neither the parents nor the children, which is why the state of Florida has revised many family laws in order to move away from such language.

A form can help establish visitation

Everyone knows that parents fighting and arguing can leave a lasting negative impression on a young child, which is why many courts encourage mediation and peaceful negotiations between divorcing couples. Unfortunately, such mediations do not always achieve the desired effect, and courts are then required to step in and establish guidelines for the divorce. These guidelines can include the custody and visitation schedules between the parents. However, if you and your spouse are willing to discuss such matters in mediation, a form might help you streamline the process.
