Visitation

Northern Virginia Visitation Rights Lawyer

Protecting Your Visitation Rights in Northern Virginia

When parents decide to separate, whether in the context of a divorce or not, determining visitation rights is one of the most challenging issues that may arise. Parents are usually in the best position to establish the most appropriate visitation arrangement for their children. When parents disagree, however, they may seek a visitation determination by the Virginia courts.

In determining a visitation arrangement, Virginia courts will consider the best interests of the child. Factors such as the ages of the child and parents, physical and mental condition of the child and parents, the child's relationships with other important family members, and any special needs of the child are some of the factors the court will consider when determining the best interests of the child and an appropriate visitation arrangement.

Parents may also modify a visitation order, but must first demonstrate that a change in circumstances has occurred warranting a modification and that the new arrangement is in the best interest of the child.
