Determining Child Custody
In the state of Virginia, the well-being of the child is of the utmost importance in child custody and visitation cases. Judges are required to maintain frequent and regular contact between the child and both parents, to ensure the child/children will be taken care of both financially and emotionally in the future.
The following factors can affect the decision-making process when child custody is being determined:
- Physical and mental health of the parents
- The parent's relationship with the child/children
- Education level and work skills of the parents
- Parent's current work and financial situation
- Each parent's motivation for seeking custody
At Catlett, Dillon, & Piper, PLLC, our dedicated Richmond lawyers can help you evaluate your own situation and make improvements to help you achieve the level of child custody you are seeking.
