Visitation Rights Lawyer in Salt Lake City
Providing Caring & Capable Legal Services for 28+ Years
Visitation rights of a parent for a child are now known as “parent-time.” Generally, a parent who is not the custodial parent or primary caregiver is entitled to enjoy parent-time at a minimum of every other weekend, one evening per week, and through a holiday schedule. Frequently, the parents work out a more generous parent time arrangement for the non-custodial parent.
If you have any parent-time or visitation needs, call Ted Weckel, Attorney at Law at (801) 845-9029 and schedule a consultation with our visitation rights lawyer in Salt Lake City.
It is not in the best interests of the child for a parent to withhold parent-time from the other parent unless there is some abuse or neglect on the part of the non-custodial parent. If the parties cannot agree on a parent-time schedule, a court will issue an order for parent-time through either a divorce or parentage suit. In determining parent-time, the court will always consider the best interests of the child. Generally, the trend is to allow both parents equal access to the children. Some statutes that are helpful to review are: Utah Codes Sections 30-3-33, 34, 34.5, 35, 35.1, 35.5, 38, and 39.
