Parenting Time & Child Visitation

Are you in a situation where you are not able to see your child as much as you would like? Does the other parent deny and/or frustrate your parenting time with your child?

In North Dakota, non-custodial parents are entitled to visitation, now termed “parenting time,” as long as that visitation is not going to harm the child emotionally or physically. Many parents are able to work out a routine schedule benefiting the child, but there are circumstances where this may not be possible for a variety of reasons. While the custodial parent carries many of the daily responsibilities of caring for the children; strong involvement by the other parent carries a lot of value as well. In fact, in North Dakota, visitation is presumed to be in the best interests of a child. If you are going through a divorce or are involved in a situation where visitation rights are being denied or frustrated, it’s time to consider an attorney to assist with your family law legal rights.
