Skilled Rhode Island Visitation Rights Lawyer

Child visitation lawyer in Rhode Island with significant expertise

There is nothing more difficult after a divorce than determining when you will spend time with your children. Missing important holidays, birthdays and other special occasions can be upsetting for both you and your child. At Kirshenbaum Law Associates, our visitation lawyers in Rhode Island consider all the important issues to help you negotiate — or win in court — a visitation schedule you and your children can live with.

Visitation and parenting time in Providence, Warwick and Cranston, RI

In Rhode Island, when one parent obtains primary physical custody over the couple’s children, the noncustodial parent usually receives reasonable visitation. Only in certain cases, such as when one parent is guilty of abuse, is that parent given limited or supervised visitation. For more information on custody rights, see our page on child custody.

Our visitation attorneys in Rhode Island help parents negotiate reasonable visitation schedules based on the needs and interests of both parents and children. If you and the other parent cannot agree, we seek successful results in court. If your situation changes, we can help you seek a custody and visitation modification.

Typical visitation schedules in Rhode Island

Visitation schedules, also known as parenting time, generally consider factors such as the proximity of each parent to the children, the parents’ work schedules, the children’s school and after-school schedules, the children’s ages and any special requirements. Parents can agree on almost any type of shared parenting arrangement:

  • Split weeks
  • Alternating weeks
  • Weekend visitation
  • Overnights midweek and weekend visitation

Other factors our Rhode Island visitation attorneys help you consider include:

  • Time of day visitation ends and begins
  • Holiday schedules
  • Children’s birthdays
  • How, when and where you exchange the children with the other parent

Knowledgeable Rhode Island grandparents’ visitation lawyer

Grandparents do not have an absolute right to visitation with their grandchildren. However, courts recognize the importance of the grandparent relationship, and grandparents can be awarded visitation rights in appropriate cases. In some cases, grandparents may even win custody or guardianship of their grandchildren.

Our grandparents’ visitation attorneys in Rhode Island value the relationship between grandparents and their grandchildren — we want to ensure you get to spend quality time with your grandkids. As experienced and successful trial lawyers, we strongly pursue visitation rights on your behalf in court when parents refuse to cooperate.
