This post is being written to conclude and recap my series on how Las Vegas fathers can deal with mothers who are refusing to follow a child visitation order. I considered this an important topic to address as it is common for dads to not know what to do in such situations. This can result in fighting with the mother and the father engaging in “self help.” These types of actions can have a negative impact on one’s case. The goal of my recent articles has, therefore, been to provide information which will help people to better understand their options. It has also been my goal to provide information which will assist with the selection of a family law attorney. If you are in need of assistance then contact my office today to speak with a lawyer.
I addressed a number of topics over my recent articles. Issues which I analyzed include:
- Taking immediate action when a mother refuses visitation
- The process of enforcing child custody orders
- Changing custody after a mother refuses visitation
- Dealing with the mother after a child custody case
There are multiple reasons why I chose to write on these particular topics. First, if a father fails to act immediately then he increases the likelihood that the Court will believe that he agreed to forego visitation. Second, the process begins with filing a Motion with the Court and it may take several months for an evidentiary hearing to be held. Understanding this process is important to the management of one’s expectations. Third, a mother’s ongoing refusal to follow visitation orders can serve as a basis to change custody. An isolated disagreement, however, typically will not. Finally, if a father does not attempt to cooperate with the mother after the case is concluded then he may very well see custody changed back in the mother’s favor.
An important point that I stressed in each of these articles is the importance of speaking with an attorney as soon as possible if you are involved in a family law dispute. Individuals who take matters into their own hands by refusing to return the mother to the child typically only hurt their own case. This is due to the fact that the Court will often see such a dad as someone who is unable to follow the legal process. By retaining counsel, you can proceed through that process correctly. As a Las Vegas fathers’ rights lawyer, I am experienced in the handling of such matters. I practice no area other than family law and I take pride in the level of representation which I offer.
