This is the first post in a series which will discuss how Family Court Judges often handle the issue of supervised child visitation in Peoria, Illinois. I am writing on this topic due to the fact that many fathers are unsure as to their options when it comes to the issue of supervised visits. It is my hope that my upcoming articles will help people to fully understand their situation. It is also my hope that these articles will help people to make an informed decision when they are selecting a fathers’ rights lawyer. If you require assistance then contact my office today to speak with an attorney.
I will address a number of topics over my coming articles. Issues which I will analyze include:
- Situations in which Courts will order supervised visits
- What to expect during supervised visitations
- The process of requesting supervised visitation
- How a father may win unsupervised visits with his child
There are several reasons why I am addressing these topics. First, it is important to understand that the Court will not order supervised visits simply because one parent wishes it. The Judge will only order such an arrangement if it can be shown that unsupervised visitation will present a threat to the child’s well-being. Second, knowing what to expect, and how to conduct oneself, during the visits will help to ensure that the parties do not quickly go back to court. Third, knowing what to expect from the legal process will help to ensure that your case is handled properly. Finally, if you are a dad who is currently limited to supervised visitation, then it is important that you take the steps to gain a more favorable order.
One point I cannot stress enough is that you should contact a child custody attorney if you are a Peoria father who is dealing with such a situation. Supervised visitation is a topic which the Court takes very seriously. It is vital that you have counsel who is able to properly express your position to the Judge.
