Child Visitation Lawyer in Ventura

Once child custody has been determined, a parenting plan must be instituted providing for visitation rights to the non-custodial parent. Absent a showing that visitation would be against the best interests of the children, the Court will strive to ensure that the non-custodial parent is provided an ample opportunity to spend time with their children, and will promote a parenting plan that allows for frequent, continuing contact. Ventura Child Visitation Attorney Robert Baskin


We represent clients in a wide variety of child visitation matters, including the following:


Judicial determination of visitation

Negotiated child visitation parenting plans

Drafting comprehensive parenting plans

Post-Judgment Modification of child visitation

Parental Relocation / Move Away Cases

Petitions for supervised visitation


Because child visitation disputes are often highly combative, it is crucial that you retain an experienced Child Visitation Attorney to guide you through these proceedings. By utilizing the skills of a seasoned lawyer who has extensive experience representing clients in child visitation matters and understands how to help diffuse the hostility, you stand a much greater chance of settling your case without the high emotional and financial cost of litigation.


The Family Law Courts encourage parents to work together to craft parenting plans that will take the needs of both the children and the parents into account, with the primary focus being on the best interests of the child.


Our Ventura Child Visitation Lawyers are all highly experienced negotiators, and will work diligently with opposing counsel to devise a fair, comprehensive parenting plan that is acceptable to both parties. If successful, the parents will be able to determine the terms of visitation rather than leaving it up to a Family Court Judge who does not know the children or the parents.  


Additionally, when parents are able to set aside their differences and work together to effectively co-parent their children, the odds of future litigation are considerably reduced.


However, when parents are unable to settle a visitation agreement, our attorneys possess the experience necessary to take your case to trial.


In an effort to prevent future arguments and litigation over visitation, parenting plans should be drafted clearly and include as much detail as possible. A well-crafted parenting plan may include the following:


Specific visitation days

Specific time for pick up and drop off

Where pick up and drop off will take place

Specific weekends for visitation

Clauses pertaining to make up time if visitation is missed due to health problems, scheduling issues, or emergency situations

Set period of time that the non-custodial parent has to pick up the children before foregoing visitation for that day / weekend, and whether make up time will be allowed

Whether make up time will be granted if the non-custodial parent misses a visitation day without prior notice

Specific days for visitation during summer breaks

Set rotating visitation schedule for all birthdays and holidays

Specific days and times for telephone visitation


If the parents reside within close proximity to one another, it may be feasible to set up a parenting plan that includes visitation during the week and every other weekend. However, if the parents live a considerable distance from each other that would make such a parenting plan impractical, the parenting plan will generally allow for extended periods of visitation during school breaks and over the summer vacation. This allows the non-custodial parent sufficient parenting time with the children.


Should one parent move far away or out of state after a parenting plan has been established, it will need to be modified. Generally the parent who creates the distance will be responsible for the cost of transportation. If airline travel is required to exercise visitation and the children are too young to travel alone, provisions may be made requiring a parent to accompany the child.


Child visitation may also be modified if circumstances arise that would justify the revocation of visitation or supervised visitation. A Ventura Child Visitation Lawyer with our law firm can assist you with your visitation modification even if we did not represent you in your initial case or any subsequent proceedings.
