Visitation Superior Client Service

Fort Myers Visitation Lawyer

Going through a divorce? Let Your Advocates assist you.

Since divorce can have a dramatic impact on the couple's children, the court will be taking the child custody process very seriously. The goal is to consider the parental rights of each spouse but also ensure the child's best interests are protected. If you are planning to divorce, you will need the assistance of an experienced and compassionate lawyer in Fort Myers who can help you resolve all child custody and visitation matters.

At Powell, Jackman, Stevens & Ricciardi, P.A., we will not stop working until we have sought out every advantage for you with regard to your parental rights and access to your children. Contact Your Advocates today to request a free case evaluation!

How does the court make time-sharing decisions?

As mentioned, the court will attempt to balance the rights of each parent with the best interests of the child. The courts typically default to a 50/50 time-sharing agreement; however, in order for there to be an unequal time-sharing plan, the court will look at the best interest of the child.

This agreement will be based upon such factors as:

  • The parent who will provide for frequent and continuing contact
  • Each parent's mental and physical health
  • Each parent's financial situation
  • The living arrangements of each parent
  • The willingness of each parent to cooperate with the other parent
  • The child's own wishes where appropriate

We will protect your parental rights and your child's welfare.

We offer a free case evaluation to anyone facing divorce and all of the surrounding issues. This is so you can explore your options and understand your rights without any obligation. If you choose to hire our firm, you will work directly with a knowledgeable attorney who will walk with you every step of the way throughout the legal process.

We don't aim to meet your expectations; our goal is to exceed them.
