Factors Affecting Visitation Rights
The relationship that you as a divorced parent have with your children may well be the most important in your life. As a parent, you have an intrinsic right to continue your relationship with your children following your divorce. However, there are certain factors that may cause you to lose this right. If the courts believe that you are a risk to the health and wellbeing of yourself or your child, they may strip you of your right to see your children. Because of the seriousness of these consequences, it may be important to familiarize yourself with the things which can prevent you from seeing your children.

What Affects Visitation Rights?
The courts are concerned first and foremost with the wellbeing of the children following a divorce, and they want to ensure that their needs are being met. If they believe that you are a threat to the safety and happiness of your children, they may suspend your visitation rights. Some things that may prevent you from seeing your children include:
- A history of alcoholism or drug abuse
- A known violent or abusive temper
- Sexual abuse allegations
- Mental health problems
If the courts believe that you are a risk to your child’s wellbeing, they will consider blocking your visitation rights.
