North Dakota/Minnesota Visitation Rights Attorney
Under North Dakota family law, non-custodial parents are entitled to child visitation rights. Minnesota family law is similar. Visitation rights are essential to the conservation of a good relationship with your children. While the custodial parent is responsible for the children’s daily care, that does not diminish the vital importance of a strong presence by the other parent. Good relationships with both parents are crucial for a child’s sense of emotional, educational, and physical well-being
If you are going through a divorce or are being denied the visitation rights awarded to you by law by your ex-spouse, you need an experienced Fargo child visitation attorney with the tenacity and knowledge to help you understand your rights under North Dakota and Minnesota family and divorce law, and fight for your right and responsibility to nurture your child, regardless of your custodial status.
Sometimes, ex-spouses will deny visitation to the non-custodial parent if there has been a dispute on child support payments. Child support and visitation rights are two mutually exclusive areas of family law, and issues with child support payments should not result in a reduction of visitation rights.
It’s important to maintain a good relationship with your children and adhere to the visitation plan outlined during your divorce. If you deviate from it, your ex-spouse can take steps to suspend your visitation. When considering the best interests of your children, you must exercise your visitation rights. A good record of visitation can work in your favor if any child visitation modifications and changes are made in the future.
