Visitation / Parenting Time
Our experienced family law attorneys at Plog & Stein, P.C. handle all aspects of divorce and custody cases related to children. Perhaps the most contested issue in any custody case, or divorce with children, relates to visitation (“parenting time” as defined by statute). Our Denver visitation attorneys often hear clients say, “Nothing matters more than my time with the children.” We understand this and are ready to fight for that relationship in any way that we can.
Pursuant to Colorado statute, parents have a right to have a relationship with their children. Our courts and laws recognize this right and the developmental importance to children of knowing and enjoying time with both parents. Our experienced attorneys are skilled at litigating visitation and custody cases for both men and women. Legal visitation battles can occur both prior to the entry of final orders and after. The visitation lawyers at our Denver firm can advise you appropriately on the strengths of your case and the appropriate course of action you should take in order to reach your visitation objectives.
Our experience and knowledge of the law and court system allows us to deal with each case in a skilled, efficient, and informed manner. Let us help you and your family. When you retain our legal services, you can feel peace of mind in knowing that we have more than 70 years of combined experience. We will be your passionate legal advocates.
Why should you hire us to handle your case? Consider the following reasons:
- We are equally skilled at establishing initial visitation orders or dealing with modifications of parenting time after the initial part of the divorce or custody case is done.
- We understand the wide array of issues that may arise in a visitation battle, including statutory factors set forth in C.R.S. 14-10-124 related to the best interest of children. We also strive to know each court we are in and what the judge in your case may be looking for when it comes to determining visitation.
- We recognize that no case is the same and that each child is different. We will tailor our approach to directly reflect the circumstances in your case.
Each visitation case brings with it the potential need for a child expert, who will investigate and inform the court as to what is in the best interests of the children regarding visitation. The experts are generally referred to as Child and Family Investigators (C.R.S. 14-10-116.5) or Parental Responsibilities Evaluators (C.R.S. 14-10-127). Over the years, our attorneys have taken the time to develop a familiarity with and understanding of the experts regularly appointed, with the goal of trying to match each case with the expert best suited to our clients’ needs. What these experts have to say can have an extreme impact on your visitation or custody case. Our attorneys are experienced in this facet of a visitation case and are also ready to guide you through the evaluation process.Our Denver Visitation Lawyers Are Dedicated to Protecting Your Parental Rights!
We are also equipped to make sure your visitation orders are enforced appropriately. Denials of court ordered parenting time can be damaging to the children and the parent/child relationship. Colorado statute provides various remedies for enforcing your visitation orders and ensuring they are followed. Whether in or out of the courtroom in a visitation matter, our Denver attorneys know which course of action will be most productive when it comes time to enforce your visitation orders. We are ready to fight for you and the best interests of your children.
