Utah Visitation Rights Roadblocks
Often non-custodial parents are disappointed to learn that child visitation schedules or parenting plans are only as powerful as the graciousness of their former spouses. A vindictive ex can put up roadblock after roadblock when it comes to allowing you to visit your children. As a parent you have Utah visitation rights to see your children. But how do you enforce that right? If you are having difficulty exercising your Utah visitation rights, contact the Salt Lake City family law attorneys of Wall & Wall, P.C.

Visitation is for the children!
Your children are only young once. The relationships you build and maintain with them through your rightful visitation schedule is meant to last a lifetime.
Just because you are no longer living under the same roof with your children doesn’t mean that you can’t have a rich, meaningful relationship with them. At Wall & Wall, P.C., we know that it is ideal if both parents are available to meet the physical and emotional well-beings of their children. Out of the house or out of the marriage doesn’t mean you should be out of their lives. It’s important to you and it’s important to them.
Don’t let petty squabbles with a former spouse keep you from your children! Whether you are a father, a mother, or a grandparent, if you have questions or concerns about visitation, contact us at our Salt Lake City office for a free consultation.
