CHILD VISITATION LAWYER
CPS Defense/Family Law

Child visitation lawyer Julie Ketterman professionally handles Divorce issues related to children such as child visitations, child custody, Texas law for periods of child possession, domestic violence, CPS defense, the Texas Family Code, the Texas Standard Visitation Schedule for those in Harris, Galveston, Brazoria, Ft. Bend, Matagorda and Waller counties.

When you are involved in a divorce and are the non-custodial parent your rights to visit your children are important to you and more so to your children. You need an experienced Family Law attorney familiar with Texas law to protect your right to spend time with your children.

You need an experienced Family Law attorney intimately familiar with Texas law which sets a schedule for periods of possession which the Court will presume to be in the best interests of the child. It is important for your attorney to know under what circumstances parents can agree on a different possession schedule than prescribed by Texas law.

Houston Family Lawyer Julie Ketterman's, goal is to resolve matters quickly from the perspective that children visitation schedules do not always have to be a traumatic, combative experience.

Even when the issues are complex, Houston Family lawyer Julie Ketterman will diligently work to protect your legal rights while avoiding unnecessary conflict and stress.

The Standard Visitation Schedule which under Texas Law

Texas law sets a schedule for periods of possession which the Court will presume to be in the best interests of the child.

The Standard Visitation Schedule which under Texas Law applies to children over three years of age is often called "Standard Visitation" generally is:

  • the 1st, 3rd, and 5th weekends of each month beginning at 6 p.m. Friday and ending 6 p.m. Sunday;
  • Friday determines which weekend is the 1st, 3rd, or 5th (not Saturday!);
  • Every Thursday night from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m.;
  • There is also time for summer and holiday provisions that supersede the above described possession periods;
  • Summer is 30 days in the summer;
  • Thanksgiving and Christmas are generally alternated every year;
  • The mother always gets the full weekend that Mother's day falls on;
  • The father always gets the full weekend that Father's day falls on regardless whether it's his/her weekend.
  • The one week spring vacation is alternated between the parties yearly.

An important feature of Texas Standard visitation is that if the parents can agree on a different possession schedule, they are free to change it.

Once a child is over the age of 18 and is no longer enrolled in school, that child is then no longer considered a minor for custody purposes and the possession schedule doesn't apply. They are legally an adult under Texas law.

For children under 3 years of age there isn't a set schedule in the Texas Family Code. Each judge will determine a schedule that is in the child's best interests and fits the needs of the parents.

Decisions related to you and your family will impact everyone's future; therefore, Julie's experience working with a family combined with Family Law knowledge and wisdom will be key factors to making the correct decisions.
