Can I be denied custody or visitation with my children?

Craig’s Answer:

In most cases it is uncommon for a parent to be denied any access to their children. Only in extreme circumstances where a parent has been involved in criminal activity, drug use, alcoholism or sexual abuse, will custody or visitation be denied. The courts and social workers take the protection of children very seriously and won’t allow a child’s well being to be placed in jeopardy. In some cases, a parent won’t have custody of the child because of certain risk factors but a possible solution to this problem is supervised visitation.
