Understanding Custody and Visitation Rights

By Cairns Law Offices  Jan. 24, 2011 10:38p

Whenever a marriage ends, the most important issue to the parents involved will not be about alimony, support or even the equitable distribution of property, but what the fate of their child is and how their best interests will be served as the marriage between the child's parents ends. These other issues are very important as well, but the fate and safety of a child is a very emotionally charged and sensitive issue. Generally, courts prefer that parents find a way to resolve the situation between themselves when it comes to the custody and visitation of the child. When the courts become involved though when a mediator is not used to settle the issues, then the Pennsylvania courts will determine what the best interests of the child are and make the decisions regarding child custody, child support, visitation and parental duties based on the financial stability and living conditions of each spouse's situation.

As a parent, it is very important to protect your rights to visit your child or to have a significant part in their upbringing, even if you are not the custodial parent. In the event that you are the custodial parent it is important to not have your rights as a parent crippled either by divorce terms that don't allow you to make decisions for your child that are important. With the help of a skilled Pennsylvania family law attorney you can ensure your rights are protected.
