Child Custody and Visitation in North Palm Beach, Florida

In a child custody and visitation proceeding under the Hague Convention, the right of access is the right to spend time-sharing with the child for a limited period of time in a place other than a child's usual residence. The remedy for a violation of this right is not to force the return of the child. A parent's right to withhold consent to take a child out of the country is a right of custody.
