Child Custody, Visitation, and Support

  • Once a party submits a Petition or Motion to Amend an Order regarding child custody, visitation, and child support, Virginia law prescribes that the "best interests of the Child" will determine custodial and financial arrangements.

  • By statute, Virginia sets formulas for calculating child support obligations.

  • Whether you hope for an agreement with another party regarding custody, visitation, and support of a child or whether you seek to present evidence before a Judge in a formal hearing, I can assist you in drafting these documents and in handling your case through the Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court and Circuit Court.

  • I regularly appear in courts throughout south-central Virginia.
