Getting proper legal representation is the most important thing you can do to assure that you get visitation (now called "parenting time") with your children. The most important question regarding the kids is custody. This is different than visitation/parenting time. After custody is decided and depending on the circumstances, your attorney will advise you whether you should ask for a specific parenting time schedule (i.e., naming the days and times when you get to see your kids) or a general parenting time schedule (i.e., "reasonable parenting time). Don't forget to discuss with your attorney the important details like holiday schedules, transportation, and where the parenting time exchange will take place.
