Ensuring Access to Your Children After Divorce
Family Access Motions can be filed in Missouri when a noncustodial parent is being denied court-ordered visitation rights. These cases can be quite complex, and it is important to have an experienced Saint Louis child custody and visitation lawyer on your side who understands the law and will work to see that your rights are protected.
At Stange Law Firm, PC, we represent people throughout Missouri, Illinois, Kansas and Oklahoma in all types of custody and visitation matters. Absent exceptional circumstances where the children are at risk for harm, Missouri, Illinois, Kansas and Oklahoma courts believe that it is in the best interests of the children to have a meaningful relationship with their parents, and so do we. You can rely on us to do everything in our power to ensure that your parental rights are respected.
Filing a Family Access Motion
In Missouri, your Family Access Motion must be filed in the county where the divorce took place. You can obtain the necessary forms from the county courthouse. While you do not necessarily need the assistance of an attorney to file a motion, our attorneys can help to ensure that the forms are completed in a way that presents the most compelling case for you to receive the visitation rights you deserve.
When you hire our firm, we will review your divorce agreement to determine exactly what the court ordered with regard to your visitation rights. We will clarify any questions about your rights and explain your options for enforcing them. In some cases, one parent or the other simply misunderstood the terms of the divorce agreement and a review of the order can settle the matter without further action. In other states, and/or different instances, a motion for contempt may be the appropriate remedy.
We pride ourselves in the fact that we provide our visitors with a wealth of information on our webpage regarding child custody, family law, and other related matters. You can read articles about family law, view informational videos, listen to our podcast or download our mobile application.
