Richmond Visitation Attorneys
Protect Your Relationship with Your Child
Nothing is scarier than being forced to stay away from your children. At Catlett, Dillon, & Piper, PLLC, we work for the benefit of our clients and their children in reaching a visitation arrangement for child custody cases. If you are in need of compassionate and tenacious representation in Richmond, Hanover County, Chesterfield County, Henrico County, or anywhere in Central Virginia, we can help.
In the state of Virginia, the well-being of the child is of the utmost importance in child custody and visitation cases. This is why judges are required to assure frequent and regular contact between the child and both parents. The only time you can be kept away from your child is if your parental rights are terminated by a court. That said, even if you are deemed an unfit parent or a danger to your child, the court can appoint a DSS or responsible adult to supervise your visitation. At Catlett, Dillon, & Piper, PLLC, our Richmond attorneys have helped numerous clients receive the visitation rights they need to be able to see their child on a regular basis even if their spouse fights against them due to personal feelings or financial considerations.
In visitation and child custody matters, courts consider:
- The mental condition and age of the child and each parent
- The needs and best interests of the child
- The willingness of each parent to keep a close relationship with the child
- The presence or history of family abuse
- The willingness of each parent to support contact with the other parent
Virginia law is focused on what is best for the child. In the case of divorce, visitation rights are granted to the parent who does not have custody of the child, but the terms of visitation can be contested by the spouse. We can explore your options and build your strategy, and we are prepared to take your case to court if an arrangement is not possible with out-of-court discussions.
