Visitation Rights in Okaloosa County

Chesser & Barr, P.A. Provides Family Guidance

In an ideal divorce case or legal separation, both spouses would sit down and discuss the best interests of the child, including the ideal custody agreement and visitation schedule. Unfortunately, this is not always possible, especially if you and your spouse are not splitting up amicably. Retaining the services of a family law attorney may be the best way to establish a visitation schedule which is fair and agreeable.

At Chesser & Barr, P.A., we have more than 35 years of legal experience guiding families through the divorce process, including helping with child custody and visitation schedules. Reach out to us today for a consultation to discuss your family's individual needs.

It may be difficult for you to figure what type of visitation schedule is most appropriate out on your own. However, our Okaloosa County divorce lawyers can help you stay focused on what is best for your children. We can either present a suggested schedule to the judge to approve (if you are able to come to a decision), or you will have to go to litigation over the matter. It is always best to avoid putting this type of important choice in a judge's hands, as they do not fully understand your family or your needs.

  • We offer representation to the following parties in visitation cases:
  • Mothers
  • Fathers
  • Step-parents
  • Grandparents

Get Help from Our Firm Now

Visitation schedules can be difficult for a number of different reasons, such as holidays where both parents want to spend the time with the child. It is important that no parts of the agreement are left general or open for interpretation, in order to prevent any misunderstandings.

Please contact our firm now at 850.610.7471 to see how we can help you.
