Balanced, Determined Representation For Mothers And Fathers

Our Prince William County child custody attorneys’ knowledge and experience span a wide range of negotiated settlements and intensely contested custody cases, including both initial determinations and custody modifications. It is essential to recognize that:

  • The Code of Virginia, Section 20-124.3, lists a number of distinct factors for consideration when issuing custody and visitation orders in the best interests of the child.
  • Although patterns vary between jurisdictions and court officials, the focus is consistently on what is best for children today and in the future, with parents’ past contributions sometimes receiving less weight.
  • The parenting plan and schedule the parties establish early in the process — and each party’s demonstrated compliance with them — are often critical.
  • Parenting choices are highly personal and value-driven, and maintaining a civil, cooperative relationship with the other parent if possible should be a priority.
  • Should a negotiated custody and visitation agreement prove impossible to reach, it is essential to have an experienced litigator on your side.
