Enforcing and Protecting Parenting Time
April 16, 2014
763 Stillwater Road, Mahtomedi, MN, 55115
Obtaining court-ordered parenting time rights often does not end the struggle to see one’s children. Protection and enforcement of access to one’s children begins with effectively drafting one’s motion and proposed order for custody and parenting time. Once an order is issued, consistent practices can help to minimize interruptions of parenting time rights. If interruptions still occur, involving law enforcement and social service organizations can help restore parenting time. If necessary, a return to court can also alleviate continued interference with parenting time. Resources for enforcement of custody and parenting time rights will also be presented.
In this session, participants will learn how to protect and enforce their parenting time rights and become familiar with the court procedures to obtain or modify parenting time.
The presenter for this workshop is Walter Burk. And he is a staff attorney at Central Minnesota Legal Services In Minneapolis, MN. He primarily represents clients in family law matters. The majority of his clients are unmarried fathers seeking custody and parenting time rights, and veterans with family, housing, and other civil law issues. Before working at CMLS, Walter was a staff attorney at the federal and Minnesota state courts. He is a graduate of the University of Minnesota Law School.
