Santa Clarita Visitation Rights Attorney

Working to Uphold Your Child’s Best Interests

It should come as no surprise that matters relating to child custody and visitation are almost without exception the most sensitive and difficult aspects of any divorce proceeding involving children. At the Law Offices of Mario Valencia, our passionate Santa Clarita child visitation attorney has extensive experience handling these matters and is prepared to help you however we can. We know how important it is that both parents be able to spend time and maintain meaningful relationships with their child and work tirelessly to help make that possible.

Child Custody & Visitation Rights

The first step in any child custody case is to determine who will be the custodial parent. This individual has primary responsibility for the child’s physical and emotional well-being, as the child will live with them. From there, a schedule for visitation is determined for the non-custodial parent to ensure that they are still able to enjoy a quality relationship with their child.

The visitation schedule should take a number of yearly events into account, such as:

  • School schedules and school-specific events
  • Birthdays
  • Holidays
  • Family traditions
  • Extracurricular activities

While parents are encouraged to determine the schedule that works best for their needs, there are situations in which the two parties are unable to come to an agreement. In these cases, the court may set the schedule.

A visitation schedule set by the court may include consideration of numerous factors, including:

  • The likelihood of parental abuse
  • Inconvenience of travel between the two homes
  • Either parent’s previous failures to abide by a visitation schedule
  • Special needs or extenuating circumstances affecting the child
  • Documented attempts by one parent to keep their child from the other parent
