How Child Protection is Settled
If you are divorcing from an abusive spouse and there are children involved, you can apply for a temporary protection order that grants you sole custody and prevents your spouse from contacting your children within the divorce or custody case, or you can petition the circuit court for a Domestic Violence Protective Order, which happens separately from any divorce or custody proceeding. While custody issues will been settled in family court, visitation rights may be established in the short term by a Domestic Violence Protective Order. Our Gillette child protection attorneys can offer the proper recommendations regarding the safety of your children during visitation with each parent.
If you are not comfortable or feel unsafe interacting with the other parent of your child regarding visitation, you can petition the court to make the following allowances:
- Mandatory supervised visitation
- Transfer of children for visitation in a public space
- Third-party transfer of children for visitation
