Detailed Richardson Visitation Attorney

Texas law favors the right of parents to maintain a close and active relationship with their children after a divorce. While visitation may be restricted or even denied in rare cases, the vast majority of divorce cases result in parenting plans that allow both parents to maintain frequent contact with their minor children.

If you are involved in a divorce or other family law matter involving a visitation issue, it is critical that you protect your rights by retaining an experienced visitation lawyer. For help in the Richardson-Plano-Garland area, I encourage you to contact me, attorney Sharon Merrick. I represent clients in divorce, paternity cases, custody and visitation modifications, parental relocation disputes and other matters affecting the custody and visitation rights of parents.

Experienced Representation From A Texas Lawyer For Visitation Issues

I practice exclusively in family law cases to provide my clients with knowledgeable advice and effective representation. I am adept at handling cases that involve unique child visitation issues such as:

  • Cases involving a special needs child
  • Cases involving allegations of physical or sexual abuse
  • Disputes concerning the education, religious upbringing or discipline of a child
  • Grandparent visitation
  • Alcohol and chemical dependency
  • Mental illness
  • Parental alienation

I also routinely work with domestic violence centers throughout north Texas and have considerable experience representing women who have been victims of domestic violence. When appropriate, I can seek a court order on behalf of my client that restricts a father to supervised visitation with minor children at a secure, court-approved facility.

I am also an advocate for fathers. I believe that fathers who have played an active role in their child's life have the right to continue to do so after a divorce. I represent fathers in a wide range of visitation matters.
