Transportation

Planning for visitation transportation is an important piece to any custody agreement. Setting out visitation transportation terms can avoid disputes and confusion down the road.

Transporting Children For Visitation — Items To Address

When providing for transportation, you must think about how exchanges will take place. You should not only plan for your current situation, but you must think about long-term scenarios.

Elements that should be addressed in a parenting plan include:

  • The days and times of the exchanges should be explicitly specified.
  • Whether it’s the start or end of a visitation period, parents should have children ready for their visit and be on time.
  • Provide for where the transfer for visitation will happen. Most often it’s the children’s home, but other locations are possible, such as the other parent’s home, the children’s school and in some high-conflict cases police stations or courthouses.
  • State which parent is to provide transportation and at whose cost.
  • When a parent lives in a distant location, it is vital to provide for visitation transportation. Also, address when children will be allowed to fly alone, what supervision is required and who will pay the costs.

ABOUT

Full Service Child Custody Representation

Our child custody practice focuses on protecting the wellbeing of children and the rights of parents. We handle issues such as:
Visitation
Often called parenting time, visitation is the amount of time a noncustodial parent spends with his or her child. We can handle a broad spectrum of visitation matters.
Creating a parenting plan
Getting visitation rights means drafting a parenting plan that works. We can help.
Relocation with a child
Courts have continuing jurisdiction over child custody and visitation orders. So, when a parent wants to move, it is usually necessary to get the court's permission first. Failure to do so can put your time with your child in jeopardy.
Enforcement of orders
If a parent fails to follow a child custody order, it may be possible to take him or her to court to enforce the order.
Contempt of court
If you are found to have repeatedly ignored a court order, you may be found in contempt of court.
Modification of orders:
When you need a court order changed, you can work with the experienced attorneys at Stange Law Firm, PC.
Custody Issues for Nonmarried Parents
Next to divorce actions, paternity cases (custody and support cases between unmarried parents) are among the most common cases in family law.
Parental Rights
Parents are often concerns about their parental rights, especially fathers in certain circumstances.
Family Access Motions
If you are being denied access to your children, you may want to consider a family access motion.
Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act
If you have jurisdictional issues involving your custody case, you will want an attorney familiar with the UCCJEA.
Custody Evaluations
If you have a complex custody case where psychological issues or abuse may be in play, you might want to consider a child custody evaluation
Hague Convention
If you are dealing with an international child custody dispute, and perhaps child abduction, knowing about the Hague Convention is often critical.
Third-Party Custody
If you are not the biological parents, in certain cases all may not be lost. You might have a right to third party custody in certain situations.
Fertility and Surrogacy
Fertility and surrogacy is a growing area of the law for those who want children.
Transportation
In some custody cases, parties might live far apart. This can result in difficult child custody cases with transportation at issue.
