The challenge for incarcerated parents
Being detained in the Netherlands not only means losing your freedom, but it can also affect your personal relationships, especially if you are a parent. Not being able to see your children can be an emotionally and psychologically draining experience for incarcerated parents, as well as their children. However, it is important to note that Dutch law recognizes that it is important for children to have contact with both parents, even if one of them is in detention.
A lawyer’s role in access arrangements
When incarcerated parents want to continue to see their children even during their prison term, it may be necessary to take legal action to establish a visitation arrangement. This is where a specialized attorney from Gimbrere Legal can be invaluable.
Lawyers from Gimbrere Legal can provide incarcerated parents with legal advice and guidance on how to request access arrangements. They understand the complex legal procedures and requirements that must be met to obtain court approval.
2. Establishing a visitation arrangement.
One of the most important tasks of an attorney is to draft a detailed access arrangement that meets the specific needs and circumstances of the incarcerated parent and child. This arrangement must be consistent with the best interests of the child and the rights of the incarcerated parent.
3. Transitional counseling
In some cases, the court may determine that visitation supervision is needed to ensure that visitation between the incarcerated parent and the child is smooth and in the child’s best interest. An attorney can help arrange this counseling and make sure everything goes according to plan.
If the other parent objects to the visitation arrangement, a lawyer from Gimbrere Legal can try to reach an agreement through negotiation. If this is not possible, they can take the case to court and argue for the rights of the incarcerated parent.
The Importance of Judicial Consent
It is important to note that a visitation arrangement cannot simply be established without court approval. The judge will always put the best interests of the child first when deciding on access arrangements. Thus, it is critical that incarcerated parents take legal action to present their case to the court and ensure that all relevant information is provided to support their case.
The attorneys at Gimbrere Legal can assist you on the basis of an addition from the Legal Aid Board. Because you are detained, a detention certificate can ensure that you do not have to pay a co-payment for the treatment of your case. So in this way, you have a free lawyer.
