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 cannot give Jeffrey Graff enough accolades.

    “I knew Jeffrey personally as a proud family man and a pillar of the community with an stellar reputation as a family/divorce attorney. When my daughter was going through her divorce and had several bad experiences with two attorneys, in the Westlake Village area, I recommended Jeffery to her. After meeting with us to discuss the situation and issues, Jeffery and his staff went to work, we went to court, Jeffery not only got the results my daughter had hoped for, but also managed to have the opposing party cover his fees, he is beyond knowledgeable, professional and fair, he's brilliant at what he does and worth every penny. I have since recommended Jeffrey to all my friends and acquaintances who need legal help and will continue to do so. I cannot give Jeffrey Graff enough accolades and thanks for his help and exceptional negotiating skill in settling the case, thank you, again.”

  • I have faith in Jeffery Graff.

    “I am a battered woman. Jeffrey saw this when I walked in a year ago to hire him to get a divorce. I was not ready. I thought I could save my 27yr marriage. He knew I would be back when I was ready. He never pushed me to follow through, he waited for me to make to be ready for the long haul. I finally did it! I got tired of being abused in so many ways. Jeffery is a very patient man. I know he will take care of me!!!!! So far so good. I know he is going to keep me in my house for now or ever. He was honest and said we may have to sell but I know the job will get done in my best interest!”
