Child Visitation

Concerned Child Visitation Lawyers in Franklin, Brentwood & Columbia TN Preserve the Parent-Child Bond

Effective representation of parenting time issues in central Tennessee

Tennessee law recognizes the importance of allowing parents to maintain healthy, loving relationships with their children after divorce. Child visitation, or parenting time, is an essential component in any plan to improve the bonds between parent and child. The Law Offices of Adrian H. Altshuler & Associates represents parents in negotiation, mediation and litigation of visitation issues. We help custodial and noncustodial parents establish workable plans for quality parenting time.

Capable attorneys help in cases of interference with child visitation

In Franklin, Spring Hill, Columbia, Murfreesboro, Lawrenceburg, and Pulaski, we see frequent cases of a custodial parent blocking the noncustodial parent’s access to their children. Usually it’s a mother who doesn’t want the father near the children, either out of resentment or because she has a reasonable fear. Our attorneys are actively involved in issues of father’s rights in divorce, and we frequently petition the court to enforce orders that provide for parenting time.  We also act as grandparents’ rights attorneys in cases where couples or custodial parents will not permit contact between grandparents and grandchildren.

Protecting children from abusive or neglectful parents

It may be a rebuttable presumption that contact with a parent is good for a child, but it is far from an absolute. There are parents who do more harm than good to their children, and the court is right to limit their access and place restrictions on when, where and how often they can meet. If you have legitimate concerns regarding your child’s safety under the supervision of the other parent, you should take those concerns to your family law attorney. The court can devise a specific plan suitable to your situation, including a bar to visitation, supervised visits and mandatory counseling for issues such as anger management and substance abuse.
