A difficult concept for people soon to be divorced or people who do not have physical custody of their child or children is when special occasions and holidays come around. When working with Lasiter & Jackson, we can help you work through this by creating a visitation agreement with the opposing party that benefits the child and allows you to spend quality time with your child or children.
In many situations, favorable outcomes can be realized as both parents usually deserve to spend time with their kids on Birthdays, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Long Weekends, Summer Breaks and other times that are deemed special to you.
