Visitation Rights Attorneys in The Woodlands Protecting Precious Time with Your Children After Divorce
Time with your children is precious and something you cannot get back. Visitation is a scheduled period that allows a parent to maintain a relationship with their children after a divorce or a similar situation.
We help parents work through disagreements over visitation and ensure both parties uphold their commitment to their children. We also assist with establishing parenting guidelines and modifying visitation rights as situations change.
Divorce and relationships are complicated, and therefore, visitation rights come with their own set of unique challenges. We help parents resolve visitation disputes and reach an amicable agreement for their kids.
How Do I Get Visitation Rights?
Children benefit from quality time with their parents, and visitation offers that consistency and normalcy after an emotional time like divorce. Another sticky situation includes unmarried parents. A mother might deny a father the right to see their children, citing paternity as the reason. We can help fathers file a paternity claim to guarantee visitation.
In any case, we help parents fight for quality time with their children. Parents turn to Morgan Bourque Attorney at Law, when they need assistance setting visitation rights with another parent or enforcing visitation rights.

Do Unfit Parents Have Visitation Rights?
Moms and dads have a right to see their children. However, one parent might deny the other visitation rights by claiming the other parent is unfit. There are two ways to define an unfit parent:
- An unfit parent fails to provide proper guidance, care, and support. An example of this might be an absent father or mother who is not involved in caring for their children.
- An unfit parent is a safety concern as they have a history of family violence or substance abuse.
The courts take visitation seriously and will expect evidence regarding an unfit parent—texts, emails, medical records, and so forth—especially if violence or abuse is involved. It’s common for angry parents to use visitation rights and custody against another parent in divorce proceedings, and the court must rule this out. Let our attorneys revisit visitation and expose an unfit parent.
Can I Modify Visitation Rights?
The court wants both parents to have a healthy relationship with their children; visitation helps accomplish this. A judge will only agree to a modification if it’s in the children’s best interest. These are some common reasons a parent might request a visitation modification:
- A child is in danger due to a parent’s violent behavior or drug/alcohol addiction
- A parent has become mentally or physically ill and can no longer take care of the child, or a parent passed away
- A parent cannot sustain a stable environment for the child, and it’s hurting the child’s well-being
- A parent is moving for a job or another reason
- A child has gotten older, and their needs have changed, including a preference for living arrangements
- A parent refuses to comply with the visitation schedule
Our attorneys can help you file for a modification for any of these reasons and pursue court approval.
