Visitation with step-children when a second marriage ends is an area of family law where there are few satisfying results.
If you have not become an adoptive parent to your spouse’s children, your rights are extremely limited.
Courts nearly always defer to the parenting decisions of a biological mother or father when it comes to who their children spend time with, and it’s a hard case to make that an ex-spouse with no biological ties to a child deserves special consideration from a judge when the biological parent has already made that decision.
However, when you work with the experienced divorce team at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we can help you negotiate for the things you care about, and maintaining a relationship with children who’ve bonded with you is a significant consideration in any divorce.
