Achieving Your Custody and Visitation Goals
The Court always makes the final determination in child custody and visitation matters, but it can be persuaded through an effective presentation of the facts and argumentation.
In Virginia, the default choice of the Court is joint legal custody. In this arrangement both parents share decision-making responsibilities in important areas such as education, health care, and religious upbringing. One parent usually has primary custody and the other parent visitation rights. But arrangements other than shared legal custody are possible.
In many cases our child custody attorneys can negotiate to achieve a fair and workable solution that the Court will accept. If necessary, your child custody lawyer will litigate in an effort to achieve your goals.
Through a careful presentation of facts and persuasive arguments your child custody attorney will work to obtain the best solution for you and your children.
