Child Custody And Visitation

Our knowledge of Virginia family law and experience in Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court help you reach the most favorable outcome of child custody and related issues:

  • Proceedings for sole custody

  • Negotiation of parenting plans
  • Paternity actions and fathers' rights
  • Grandparents' rights to visitation

Child Support Issues

The state child support guidelines are based primarily on the parents' incomes and the number of children. Support can also be adjusted for such factors such as percentage of parenting time, child care expenses and special needs of the child. Our knowledgeable lawyers ensure the court has accurate financial information for setting support levels or deviating from the guidelines.

We also handle child support modifications for a qualifying change in circumstances, and child support enforcement when a parent is not providing court-ordered support.
