If you were determined to be the legal, biological parent of a child, you have rights to see your children. There are numerous statistics to support the argument that it is beneficial to a child to have both of their parent’s involvement in their life; that is why it is so important to maintain regular visitations with your child’s biological parent. Under California family law, the non-custodial parent must be granted reasonable visitation rights unless the visitation would be detrimental to the child.
If your divorce decree states that there is limited visitation, you may be eligible to modify your final order. Visitation rights are always determined to be in the child’s best interests, and the parent who was not granted child custody must still be allowed visitation rights. If you have been refused visitation or granted limited visitation with supervision, it is important that you contact an attorney right away. Your rights as a parent may be being violated by a vengeful ex-spouse and you need to fight for your children.
