Child Visitation Lawyer Dayton, OH

Child Visitation Rights Ohio

When it comes to spending time with your children, it’s important that you seek legal help to support your rights. Parents who no longer remain together often have a difficult time agreeing on the best way to split time with their children. Satisfying the wishes and needs of each parent and the children can be extremely challenging. In some circumstances, parents decide to share custody. However, if your ex is granted sole custody, it’s important that you establish visitation rights to preserve your time with your children.

At L. Patrick Mulligan & Associates, LLC, our Dayton visitation attorney are passionate about helping parents and families in need of legal help. We have more than 50 years of combined legal experience, and we are dedicated to providing each of our clients with step-by-step legal guidance.

Establishing Parental Rights

If you wish to pursue visitation, you must first establish your parental rights. Mothers inherently have parental rights as biological parents. For fathers, however, parental rights must be established. If the father’s name is written on the child’s birth certificate, or the parents were married at the time the child was born, the father’s parental rights are also protected. However, in any other circumstances, the father must establish his parental rights through a paternity test to confirm that the child is his. Once paternity has been confirmed, the father may then pursue his rights to either visitation or child custody.

Child Visitation Laws in Ohio

Non-custodial parents have a right to spend time with their children on a regular basis through visitation rights. Parents may pursue visitation rights while establishing a parenting plan in the event of divorce or separation, or as an amendment to an existing parenting plan. If the other parent is granted sole custody of your children, you should take action to establish visitation rights through the court.

Our firm can help you with your child custody or visitation issue. If you want to spend more time with your child, we can inform you of your rights and help you build a case to represent your interests in court.

    "Patrick and his team are the only choice!"
    My husband was forced to defend himself at our home but that put him in jail. I first went with another lawyer, Mike Mills, who took my money and that was it. Feeling hopeless, I contacted Patrick’s team and they didn’t disappoint. Within 3 hours, Patrick was at jail speaking with my husband and a few days later, Patrick had him home. When you call the office, everyone helps you. You are not just another case to them; I know and experienced it. They are a team you want to be on your family’s side! Thank you Patrick and Laura and team - you are the best, thank you!

    "When he walks in, all the fear melts away and he comes out swinging."
    My family and I have used Patrick for different cases. A child custody as well as DUI. Initially you may feel scared and want to keep calling but in the end he has always proven that he is the best of the best. When he walks in, all the fear melts away and he comes out swinging. He knows what he's doing. Child custody WON! DUI best possible outcome! I wouldn't hire anyone but him. I highly recommend! Thanks Mr. Mulligan and staff!

    "Best Lawyer ever."
    Patrick Mulligan took on my case in May 1996 not knowing how things would go. My case being his first Big case. He saved my life. I have still to this day will always remember and be Thankful to him for trusting and believing in me. I was a mother of a daughter 19 months old who as killed by my boyfriend at the time. The state tried to prove me for child endangering and wanting me to serve 18 months in prison. Parick didnt know until that point what he had gotten into . Patrick did everything he could to prove I was a good mother. It was almost a year after my daughters life was taken. We went to trail and I stood on the stand with all my friends and Dr.'s. Patrick worked so hard for me and we won and here I am 15 years later . I found his web site and had to tell my story. Anyone who needs his help he will work as hard as he can for anyone he believs in. I'm so gald to see he is still in Cinti helping people. Thank you Patrick. I will talk to you soon.

    "Help in the Middle of the Night"
    Mr. Mulligan made all the difference in my case. Through his yellow page ad, I was able to reach him in the middle of the night, after my ex-wife had me falsely arrested for Domestic Violence Verbal. He was prompt in coming to my assistance. He went out of his way to help reach my family so that they could get me released from holding. He answered all my questions and walked me through the entire process. He was able to get the results I was hoping for at the pre-trial, so that we did not actually have to go through an actual trial. Mr. Mulligan exceeded all my expectations and I would recommend him to anyone who finds themselves in a similar unfortunate situation. He was a Godsend for me.
