Can a non custodial parent(father) secure court ordered visitation while incarcerated?
1 attorney answer
The court would consider what's in your child's best interests. Generally speaking, the court considers it to be in a child's best interests to have some kind of relationship with both parents; however, the safety and emotional well-being of the child are always the most important considerations. If you don't have an attorney you should probably get one to help you, if you have low income, the court may appoint an attorney for you. Good luck!
