FAMILY LAW ATTORNEYS SPECIALIZING IN CHILD CUSTODY IN VIRGINIA
Mothers and fathers can come to an agreement concerning child custody outside the courtroom. In such a case, they can present their custody and visitation rights arrangement to the court for approval. This type of situation can be worked out through negotiation between both sides after which a lawyer can create what is known as a stipulation and consent order which a judge can finalize into a court order.
In instances where parents cannot agree on child custody and visitation rights, the court may order negotiating in an initial plan to create a joint agreement. If the parents cannot come to terms using this method, then the case must be presented to the court for a ruling. Custody is decided on the basis of what is in the best interests of the child. Neither mother or father will be favored over the other. Factors that a legal court will consider in generating custody and visitation orders include which parent has acted as the main caregiver, the fitness of each parent, financial resources of each parent, which parent is more likely to encourage the continuation of family relationships for the child, the child’s preference if old enough to have an opinion, and any other factor which may have a bearing on the child’s well-being.
