Are you a third party that would like visitation with children after a
divorce? Third party visitation cases are taken on a case-by-case basis.
Sometimes the courts will get involved in enforcing visitation time if
it is in the best interests of the child. If you want to explore the option
of court-ordered visitation in your case, don't hesitate to contact
the firm right away to learn more.
What is a third party in visitation cases?
A third party can include:
- The unmarried partner of a child's parent
- An aunt or uncle
- A cousin
- A close friend
Here's an example of third party visitation: Imagine that your best
friend is getting a divorce. You have become like a second mother to your
best friend's children. They call you an "auntie" and love
spending time with you. You have a very close emotional bond with them
and do not want this to be cut off. Unfortunately, your best friend's
ex-spouse receives full custody of the children. You can petition for
visitation in order to secure time with the kids. Sometimes, a parent
may be willing to let you spend time with the children without a visitation
order. These orders are only necessary in situations where the custodial
parent is opposed to your relationship with the children and you wish
to enforce it.
