Non-Custodial Parental Rights
Full Video Transcript
Are you a noncustodial parent at war with the custodial parent? Unfortunately, sometimes a custodial parent can behave in ways that make co-parenting a nightmare -- like limiting access to the child or failing to follow the custody and visitation schedule. The good news is that noncustodial parents have a number of rights and options today, probably more than ever before. A noncustodial parent can file a petition in court to modify or even clarify an existing custody order. The court can set forth specific days and times your child will spend with you, how many phone calls you can have with your child when you're not together, and even confirm your right to access the child's medical and school records. While these things may seem obvious, unfortunately, many noncustodial parents find them a daily challenge. For more information about how to enforce your rights as a noncustodial parent, contact an attorney in your area today.
