Enforcement of Child Visitation Agreements
In a divorce that involves children, you and your spouse must usually agree to comply with a particular child visitation arrangement. This arrangement must be adhered to by both spouses, by law, and if a violation occurs, one may pursue legal action to enforce the terms of the child visitation agreement. Strict adherence to child visitation agreements is important for the health and safety of children, as well as the law. But if a spouse fails to adhere to these agreements, the threat that this may pose to a child’s schedule and safety might be prevented in the future by legal enforcement.
Why Enforcement is Critical
It may not seem like a big deal to some parents to adhere to the arrangement mandated in their divorce regarding child visitation, but enforcement of such policies is important for a number of reasons. For instance, enforcement of child visitation is critical because:
- It allows a child to have regularity in his or her schedule
- It prevents unsafe or irresponsible contact with a child
- It offers the parents with primary physical custody a regular schedule
- It allows for legal action in the event of a violation of arrangements
Enforcement of visitation agreements is important to many individual parents, especially those who fear that their ex-spouses will violate an agreement.
