Virginia Fathers' Rights and Child Custody Law
Virginia law does not have a presumption in favor of a mother over a father in a custody case. Frequently, however, a father has to overcome the societal perception that a mother is the best person to raise a child. If you were the primary caretaker or if there are other reasons, such as drug or alcohol abuse, that you are a better position to be the primary custodian, we will work with you to use these favorable facts to seek custody.
Our lawyers are experienced in cases involving:
- Fathers' custody rights
- Enforcement and modifications
- Developing parenting time plans
- Protecting the best interests of the child
- Child support
