Visitation

Westlake Village Visitation Lawyer

Help with Custody, Parenting Time, & Visitation Orders

Before you terminate the marriage, you and your spouse must consider how the divorce will affect your children. This includes establishing child custody, support, and visitation.

How will the children be cared for once the dissolution is finalized? Who will they live with? Where will they spend most of their time? Questions like these must be answered in order to determine how visitation and custody will play out.

An experienced family law attorney such as myself can help you establish a parenting plan that includes stipulations on visitation. My office can help you request a court order, respond to a request, modify an existing order, or enforce an order that’s not being properly followed.

Types of Visitation Agreements in California

Also referred to as “time sharing,” visitation agreements provide parents with an established plan for splitting the time they spend with their children. As with all other matters involving children, the court will always rule in favor of the visitation agreement believed to be in the best interests of the children.

Typically, visitation rights of a parent will fall into one of the following categories:

  • Visitation by Schedule: Visitation schedules allow parents to plan out when they will see their children, right down to the day and time. These schedules typically account for holidays, vacations, and special occasions as well.
  • Reasonable Visitation: Reasonable visitation orders are more open-ended than visitation schedules. Parents are usually left to work out the details of visitation on their own. As such, parents must be amicable, communicative, and flexible if a reasonable visitation order is to work.
  • Supervised Visitation: Supervised visitation is used to protect children whose safety and wellbeing could be at risk without supervised visits. If one parent has a history of violence, substance abuse, etc., he or she may be restricted to visits where another adult, or even a professional agency, supervises.

At the Law Offices of Jeffrey S. Graff, I can help you with any of these types of visitation orders. I also handle cases related to grandparent visitation rights and third-party visitation rights.

  • Long story short, Jeff was able to get the monthly amount we paid cut down by more than half!!

    “Jeffrey handled my Family matter. Jeff is great!! He really helped me and my husband fight my husband’s ex. My husband got hurt at work and we were really having a tough time. My husband ex’s got a big child support order against my husband and we didn’t even know that she went to Jeffrey handled my family matter. Jeff is great!! He really helped me and my husband fight my husband’s ex-wife. My husband got hurt at work and we were really having a tough time. My husband ex-wife had a huge child support order against my husband and we didn’t even know that she went to court for that!! Then, she started coming after us for this big child support money every month. She wouldn’t even let her kids come over to visit with us and my kids, but just wanted the money and my husband wasn’t working. My co-worker went to Jeff for her divorce and she told me to call and talk to him. I am so thankful that I called him. I talked to him and he explained everything to me. I needed that because I didn’t know what to do. My husband and I met with him in his office. Jeff and the secretary were both so nice and very professional. I completely trust them! Long story short, Jeff was able to get the monthly amount my husband pays to his ex-wife cut down by more than half!! And on top of that got the judge to make my husband’s ex let the kids come and visit with my husband, who is still hurt, and my kids. Everything worked out so much better than I thought it could. I didn’t know we had a choice and that we could go to the judge to lower the support AND let us see the kids. I would recommend Jeff to anyone who need help with family law. Very Helpful.”

  • I felt that he always had my best interest in mind!

    “I selected Jeff to represent me because he specialized divorce cases and had worked with the Ventura County judges for many years. He was very patient with me as dealt with the emotions of getting a divorce after a 19-year marriage, and helped me through the terrible stress of facing my ex-spouse and being in the courtroom. He gave me very good advice on how to manage the property settlement, especially on when I should capitulate and when I should hold my ground. I felt that he always had my best interest in mind (rather than just collecting his fee) and worked diligently to bring the case to a fair conclusion.”

While other lawyers might be evasive in an effort to prolong the process (hence their fees), Mr. Graff was straightforward and eager to conclude the proceedings quickly in an effort to minimize my pain.”

I would absolutely hire him again and definitely recommend him to anyone in need of family law representation.”
