Visitations issues handled by The Law Offices of Mark S. Paige
Sole custody and child visitation
Sole custody means that a parent has been deemed unfit by a court and cannot be trusted to take care of a child. The courts rarely awarded sole custody to one parent. When it is, the rights of the other, non-custodial parent are curtailed, and they lose the right to make critical decisions in his or her child’s life. Losing custody, however, does not mean that they lose the right to visit with their child. If one parent is unfit, they should have the chance to become the parent their child deserves through supervised visitations. In the future, this parent may even be able to change the custody structure
Order for visitation
If you are faced with a hostile custodial parent, a petition seeking an order of visitation may be filed to request intervention by the court. Parents are not the only ones who can submit a request. Grandparents, siblings, half-siblings, and step-siblings may also file. Unfortunately, New York will not award custody to many other family members, including stepparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Of course, when deciding on these cases, New York courts will always act in the best interests of the child.
Other individuals who can file for visitation rights
In New York State, the following individuals may file for visitation rights:
- Grandparents visitation – The courts will hear requests for visitations from grandparents. However, they will only consider this request from natural or adoptive grandparents and not great grandparents, aunts, or uncles.
- Siblings visitation – in New York State siblings and half-siblings have visitations rights. If the sibling is a minor, an older sibling or Parent must innate the request.
- Step-siblings visitation – unfortunately, the present NYS law states that only siblings and half-siblings have the right to request visitation.
