Every parent has the right to a meaningful relationship with his or her children. In some cases, though, the court will put specific limitations in place if there is a concern for the child's welfare under the noncustodial parent's care. Depending on the situation, the court may allow only supervised visitation when unsupervised visitation with one parent will impair the physical health or emotional development of a child.
If you are in a custody battle, it is important that you have an experienced family law attorney who knows your rights and will work to see that they are protected. At Stange Law Firm, PC, we represent clients in a wide variety of complex custody and visitation matters. We believe strongly in every parent's right to a strong relationship with his or her children, and we work diligently to see that you receive fair treatment under the law.
Why Would the Court Order Supervised Visitation?
In cases where there is a history of domestic violence or sexual or emotional abuse, the court must take the necessary steps to ensure the safety of the child. By ordering supervised visitation, there is an advocate for the child present at all times. Our St. Louis supervised visitation lawyers represent parents on both sides of these cases.
Whether you are a custodial parent concerned for the welfare of your child or a noncustodial parent fighting to remain a part of your child's life, we will make the strongest possible argument to support you. We also handle modifications of visitation orders. We work to prove that the noncustodial parent is no longer a threat to the child's welfare so that the supervision requirement may be lifted.
