Staunton Visitation Attorneys Helping Parents Achieve Their Goals

At the beginning of every case, we will give you the information you need to make informed decisions about your custody issues. In Virginia, courts can award one parent sole custody or award both parents joint custody.

Additionally, joint custody can be broken down a few different ways. For instance, while parents may share joint legal custody, meaning that each parent maintains an active role in making decisions over various aspects of the child's upbringing, it is likely that one parent will have primary physical custody. This means that the child will spend the majority of his or her time with one parent, while the other parent will have visitation rights.

We understand the potential stress and uncertainty these issues can cause. Whenever possible, we try to reach a negotiated resolution. Resolving custody cases through negotiation can reduce friction between the parents and give them more control over the eventual outcome. Of course, if we have to argue your case before a judge, each of our attorneys has the experience to aggressively fight for your goals.
