Anchorage Child Visitation Lawyer
Alaska law favors the right of both parents to maintain an active relationship with their child during and after a divorce. Unless domestic violence, child abuse or other factors are present that adversely impact the welfare of children, parents are strongly encouraged to maintain strong and active relationships with their children despite the fact that their marriage has ended.
I am Dorothea G. Aguero, an Alaska family law attorney committed to helping parents resolve visitation disputes in a productive and cooperative fashion that benefits the parties and serves the best interests of children. While visitation disputes can often be challenging, most visitation disputes can be resolved in a cooperative fashion that encourages successful co-parenting and helps parents avoid future legal entanglements.
I also understand that parents with the best of intentions can have honest disputes about what is best for their children. I have the experience necessary to be a strong advocate for my clients in the courtroom when necessary.
Protecting Your Rights And Your Family
With more than 25 years of legal experience, I have represented clients in cases involving a wide range of visitation issues. I have experience advocating on behalf of clients in cases involving:
- Parental relocation disputes
- Allegations of parental alienation
- Concerns about alcohol or chemical dependency issues
- Questions about parental fitness
- Disputes over parenting time schedules
- Denied visitation and violation of court orders
- Physical or sexual abuse
- False allegations of abuse
- Grandparent visitation
- Modifications of parenting plans
- Domestic violence, restraining orders and supervised visitation
- Other key visitation issues
Collaborative Law Services
I have advanced training in collaborative law, a process that encourages parents to find cooperative solutions to legal disputes without court intervention. The collaborative process may allow you to minimize the financial and emotional costs of a visitation dispute. I encourage you to learn more about the collaborative law process, as it may help you avoid the stress, cost and acrimony, which often result from contested visitation disputes.
Should you determine that the collaborative law process is not right for you, I have the experience necessary to assist in contested visitation disputes, including those arising during or after a divorce. I also assist unmarried parents in paternity proceedings, and I offer legal representation to grandparents who require experienced representation for a custody or visitation matter.
