Missouri attorney can help with visitation issues

All people who get married generally have one thing in common -- they expect to spend the rest of their life with the person they tie the knot with at the end of the aisle. However, life happens and people change, possibly meaning a couple is no longer compatible. Those who decide that a divorce is in their best interest have many decisions to make, including child custody arrangements if there are children involved. Fortunately, there is help available with visitation issues for those seeking a divorce in Missouri.

In Missouri, family courts typically prefer a joint custody arrangement. Generally, the child will reside primarily with one parent. A parenting plan will help address a parent's concerns about how often they will see the child as well as how the holidays will be spent and drop-off and pick-up procedures.

In some cases, a court could decide to award one parent with sole physical custody. This typically happens in the case of drug or alcohol abuse or dependence, violence or mental illness. In a case such as this, supervised visitation could be awarded depending on the underlying circumstances.

As complicated as visitation issues can sometimes seem, the attorneys at Featherston Law Firm can help with both modifications and initial parenting plans. With our experience, we can advise you of your options -- whether you are seeking a divorce or are an unmarried parent -- while helping you pursue the best interests of your child.
