Visitation

Visitation Some parents will do anything to deny or limit the other parent’s ability to regularly visit and maintain a relationship with their children. What so many don’t realize is that the child is the one who will carry those burdens into adulthood. If more parents could see just how traumatic these battles are for their children, we’re confident a strong parenting plan would be sought instead of playing the typical “I’m a better parent” games that are common in divorce.

Most often, our clients are excellent parents who simply want as much time with their children as possible without necessarily “fighting for custody.” There are no ulterior motives, but just a sincere desire to co-parent their children. Whether you want more than the minimum amount of time in the standard possession order, whether the other parent is trying to restrict your access to your children or is insisting the visits are supervised, family law attorney Jon R. Boyd will fight to make sure you get the time with your children that you both deserve.

Nothing is more reprehensible than selfish motives that work to keep a parent and child apart unless it is truly warranted because of abuse or neglect. In Texas, there is a standard guideline – known as the “Standard Possession Order”- for the non-primary custodial parent’s presumed minimum amount of visitation with the children. These standards are created primarily for the benefit of the children. In most instances, a divorce may have two adults who can no longer share a life together, but who do share children and who want nothing but the best for them. These are the cases that are less likely to have kids who feel as though they’re not a priority. Ultimately, isn’t that what every parent wants – to be sure his children know that they are top priority; that their happiness and well-being is more important than even the next battle with the other parent? The decisions we make today in a divorce that involves children will affect them far longer and in ways we might not had anticipated. Isn’t the foundation of solid parenting built on the strength of Mom and Dad’s commitment to protecting their shared children?

While all of that sounds good, in the real world, there are those who do lose sight of those core priorities. This is where Jon R. Boyd can make a real difference for both his client and his client’s children. To learn more about your rights when it comes to Texas laws regarding child visitation, contact our office today.

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
