Guiding You Through Visitation Issues

Visitation will only be necessary if one parent is awarded sole custody of a child. This means that the child’s primary home will be with the custodial parent. California courts strongly believe that children should have adequate time with both parents. This is why they provide visitation rights to the noncustodial parent; in order to make sure the bond stays strong with both parents.

We can help you with the following visitation matters:

  • Creating a case for a favorable parenting plan
  • Working with the other parent to create a plan
  • Petitioning for a modification of a visitation order
  • Proving a custodial parent has denied you visitation

Our Rancho Cucamonga family lawyers can also fight to make sure you get the level of visitation rights that you deserve. There are numerous types of visitation orders, from supervised visitation to scheduled visitation, so it is important that you consult with our attorneys to seek the most favorable outcome possible for your situation.

What types of visitation orders are available in California?

California offers various types of visitation orders to accommodate different family situations.

The goal is to serve the best interests of the child while maintaining parental bonds. Our Rancho Cucamonga family lawyers can help you understand which type of visitation order may be most favorable for your circumstances and work towards achieving it.

Yes, you can petition to modify an existing visitation order in Rancho Cucamonga if there has been a significant change in circumstances that affects the best interests of the child. Our attorneys at Chung & Ignacio, LLP can help you navigate the legal process to request a modification. This may involve demonstrating the need for more or less visitation time, or addressing concerns such as a custodial parent denying visitation.

What should I do if I'm being denied visitation rights by the custodial parent?
