Fighting to Protect You in Child Custody and Visitation Disputes
There are many factors used by the court to make a decision concerning child custody and visitation in a Virginia divorce. The overarching guideline that the court uses to make its determination is the standard of the best interests of a child. Many factors play into a court's ruling including:
- The age and special needs of a child
- The ability of a parent to foster a stable home
- In some instances, the child's preference
- Ability of a parent to work with a spouse
- Instances of domestic violence or abuse
- Other relevant factors
