A child is loved by many family members. Not only do parents have a close bond, but grandparents, aunts, uncles, and even close family friends form bonds that are difficult to relinquish when relationships end. When parents separate or divorce, these third parties can often lose their very close connections with the children - both the child and the family are deeply affected. At Martin & Wagner, P.A., we firmly believe in pursuing what is in the best interests of the children. This often includes advocating for the visitation rights of those who are not the parents, but who have been closely connected to the children. Our child visitation rights attorneys in Rogers, Minnesota, understand the child visitation laws in Minnesota and are here to help.
If you're seeking child visitation, it is important to know that visitation cannot interfere with a parent's custody rights or parenting time (visitation). Minnesota gives no absolute rights to third-party custody or visitation and certain conditions must be satisfied before you can bring the issue to a court. However, MN courts do understand the importance of a strong upbringing for all children. In fact, courts will often award third-party custody, or child visitation rights, to individuals who have played a significant role in the child's life.
As dedicated child custody attorneys, we strongly advocate on your behalf to represent your interests and explain why your visitation or custody request will benefit the child's best interests. We will attempt to negotiate your requests before we take your case to trial, so you can rest assured that we will never waste your time or money.
