Hampton Child Custody Lawyers

Defending Your Child’s Best Interests

Child custody matters are some of the most emotional and difficult for parents and children to face. During a divorce, the courts will determine where the child will live and who has the authority to make decisions about his or her life. They can also make decisions about visitation rights, whether it applies to a non-custodial parent or even to a grandparent. At Haven Law Group, P.C. we provide compassionate and knowledgeable legal representation that prioritizes your best interests and the best interests of your child.

Call our Hampton child custody lawyers today at (757) 209-2167 for a free evaluation of your case. We can provide legal counsel and help you take the first steps toward achieving your child custody goals.

Virginia Custody Laws

Virginia offers three types of custody arrangements: Joint Legal Custody, Joint Physical Custody, and Sole Custody. Physical custody refers to where the child will live, while legal custody refers to which parent(s) have the authority to make decisions about the child’s care and upbringing. The courts weigh the child's own preference heavily when determining custody.

It is important to remember that even if sole physical custody was granted to one parent, the other parent can still be granted joint legal custody as well as visitation rights. Even if the child primarily or solely lives with just one parent, under joint legal custody, both parents have the right to cooperate in making decisions about the child’s life, such as educational decisions, religion, extra-curricular activities, etc.

Custody Considerations

When making decisions about custody and visitation, the court will consider a variety of factors, including:

  • The child’s developmental needs and health
  • The age and physical condition of each parent
  • The child's relationship and interactions with each parent
  • How involved each parent has been in the child's life already
  • The child’s own preference if he or she is old enough to have reasonable intelligence and understanding
  • Whether or not there is a history of abuse with either parent
  • How much each parent demonstrates willingness and fitness to raise the child well
