One of the most sensitive areas of family law concerns future access to the children of spouses seeking to divorce. Spouses may agree on several important factors in a divorce but cannot come to a mutual agreement regarding the custody of their minor children. Courts consider “the best interests of the children” if required to decide for the parties.
At the Law Office of Arquilla & Poe, PLC, we help our clients establish and implement custody and visitation arrangements that are in the best interests of their minor children while also ensuring our clients’ parental rights are protected. We realize that custody matters can be very emotional and stressful for families. Our goal is to assist you in obtaining the most effective and satisfying custody and visitation arrangement in your case. We also assist with post-divorce modification to an existing child custody and visitation court order or agreement.
In Virginia, child custody and visitation determinations are based on the “best interests of the child or children” involved, considering the following factors, including but not limited to:
In military families, resolving child custody and visitation issues often is complicated by the fact that one or both parents do not consider Virginia to be their home and desire, or are required to, relocate from Virginia. We have experience in obtaining solutions to these relocation problems that protect the legal rights of our clients and the best interests of their children.
