About denied child access rights

Parents in Texas who are denied access to their children may find the experience to be difficult to handle emotionally. However, before taking any action it is important to learn why they were denied.

Being completely denied child access by the family courts is something that generally happens rarely, but it is possible. The courts are likely to deny a parent access if it is believed that there is an issue with safety or a concern that the emotional or physical wellbeing of the children may be compromised.

Some parents may be required to fulfill certain requirements, such as completing a parenting class, being treated for alcohol or drug addiction or taking part in anger management work. If this occurs, it is important that the parents try to comply with the requirements as quickly as they can to show the courts that they are willing to do what it takes to spend time with their children again.

Instead of denying child access, the courts may require that the access be supervised. If supervised access is ordered, it is possible that the parent may not have any control regarding where the visits will occur or who will provide the supervision.

When supervised visits are ordered, parents should make sure that they fully understand how long each visit will be, where the visit be and who will be qualified to act as a supervisor. The parents also need to know if the order is temporary, or if there are other requirements issued by the courts that should be completed before the visits are allowed.

A divorce attorney may assist clients with resolving many divorce legal issues, including child custody. The attorney might consider the factors of a case and any current child possession or access orders in place and may litigate to protect the rights of parents.
