Visitation Litigation

It is the public policy of the State of Texas to ensure that parents who have shown the ability to act in their child(ren)'s best interest should have frequent and continuing contact with their children.The Texas Legislature enacted the Texas Standard Possession Order.

When the legislature implemented the standard possession order, it standardized child custody and visitation arrangements. Our attorneys work with individuals to create fact-specific explanations of parents' activities and reasons to support their visitation preferences. Visitation can be limited in some instances depending upon facts.At Prater & Ridley Attorneys At Law, we work with parents throughout Central Texas to educate them about the factors that may influence their parenting plans.

For parents, making life-changing decisions means not only considering how it will impact their own lives, but how it will impact their children's lives. For example, if a job offer requires moving out of the city or state, it would impact the visitation and custody. As a result, the court may prevent parents from moving too far away with their children. Whether you are considering a move or want to prevent your child from moving with your spouse, our lawyers can discuss the facts of your case and advise you.
