Joint Child Custody in Virginia

Trust my firm to put your needs first!

Custody is anything having to do with the care and preservation of children after a divorce. For many parents, it is the decision they care most about. Joint custody is split up into two categories: legal and physical. Joint legal custody gives both parents the ability to make major decisions for their child, while joint physical custody splits a child's time equally between each parent.

I understand that you want the best for your child and always aim to achieve an outcome you feel comfortable with. My firm is founded on 20 years of experience, each one more successful than the last. When you put your trust in my hands, I will maximize my abilities as a Virginia Beach child custody lawyer to preserve the relationship between you and your child.

What are the benefits of joint custody?

At first glance, joint custody may seem distasteful to parents who have just gone through a divorce. But upon closer examination, the advantages are often numerous and undeniable.

When you pursue joint custody, benefits often include:

  • Strong relationships that thrive even after a divorce
  • Less conflict, making it easier for children to adjust
  • Open, honest communication
  • A minimized sense of rejection for children
  • Incentive for parents to get along
  • Feelings of equality amongst the family

When joint custody is being considered by both parents, the court takes special care to ensure that such a decision is in the best interests of the child. They will consider the child's relationship with the parents, financial stability, and even the child's preference. Fortunately, most courts tend to encourage joint custody and only resort to sole custody in light of more serious circumstances.
