Visitation

Visitation Issue: Father who has 2 children with different mothers, was given highly restricted, supervised access of his child with mother #2 in an adjacent county only when he represented himself without an attorney.

Result: Father got unsupervised standard possession for his one child in another county against mother #1.visitation


Issue: Father was served by Mother with Petition to Modify, seeking to have his visitation supervised.

Result: We defeated Mother and kept visitation as previously ordered.


Issue: Wife contended Husband, who was mentally impaired due to a motor vehicle accident, which resulted in his allegedly being neglectful and abusive, should only get visitation for very short visits supervised by her or an agency.

Result: We hired a neuro-psychologist to give expert testimony. Judge awarded Standard Visitation periods, to be assisted by Father’s parents.


Issue: When I took over this case from another attorney last year, my client had lost all visitation rights due to a protective order and was faced with owing an arrearage of $30-40,000 plus attorney’s fees.

Result: We won custody of the kids, put Mom on supervised visitation, ordered Mom to pay support, erased the entire arrearage judgment, and obtained an award of $11,500.00 attorneys fees against Mom.


Issue: “New Mother Syndome”

Result: Successful defenses against what I call ‘new mother syndrome’, meaning a young first time mother tried to severely restrict or limit the father’s visitation without real cause.


Issue: Dad denied visitation by mother of his child.

Result: Held Mom in contempt for denial of visitation, got all make up time and attorney’s fees paid back to Dad.

Jon, once again – Great job! I can’t begin to express how grateful I am for your overall knowledge of the law and your impressive trial skills. Simply outstanding! It may have been just another day at the office for you, but you’ve made a huge positive impact on my life and more importantly on my son’s life. Thanks again. Anonymous

My experience as Jon’s client was stellar and I can’t imagine having gone through everything the last few years without him going to bat for me. My case was a high conflict child custody modification. Jon is incredibly knowledgeable and he expertly applied this knowledge to my case. He has a very confident, commanding presence in the courtroom and his loyalty to the success of me and my case was clear in his actions. Our outcome was better than I expected and I am happy with the results. He and his staff are diligent, skilled and worth every cent. If you need assertive, sharp, highly skilled representation, then I absolutely recommend Jon. Anonymous

A most genuine ‘Thank You’ from me and my family. (I am) very fortunate that I found you in 2006 to represent me in battling The Devil in Divorce-Custody #1. It’s no secret that I hold you in high regard and probably place unfair expectations on your back to carry into battle with me. Just know that there is no one I trust more than you when it comes to guiding/representing/fighting for me and my family. You earned my respect and trust nine years ago now. I already know the quality of man I walk into the courtroom with. And that provides me a level of confidence which cannot be replaced. I’m loyal to a fault, my friend. The quality of your work and your office staff’s support and responsiveness have all been top notch in dealing with me and my family’s legal issues... Anonymous
