Child Custody Laws
The following are examples of child custody cases our child custody lawyers handle in Virginia & Maryland:
Custody — Joint Legal vs. Sole Legal and primary physical vs. shared physical: In Virginia and Maryland, there are two main issues in a child custody case. Legal custody is the right to make decisions for your children. Physical custody covers which parent your child will be with and when.
Parenting time: Most clients when they come to us think of that primary physical custody is the norm in Virginia and Maryland, and that visitation is usually going to that one parent is going to be the children most of the time and the other parent is only going to be able to see the children on alternating weekends and holidays. This is not true. There is no such thing as this is how it is always. We frequently help our clients prove that there is no “normal” and that various time-sharing arrangements are possible in Virginia & Maryland. When you hire our Maryland/Virginia attorneys who help clients with child custody cases in Virginia and Maryland, we recognize that our job is to help you come up with a parenting schedule that is feasible based on your situation and in the best interests of your children. Our Maryland/Virginia lawyers recognize that child custody can be a fluid environment, and we assist our clients with post-divorce modifications to parenting plans.
Parent relocation (Moving out of State): Relocation cases are incredibly common in northern Virginia and Maryland. When either parent is facing a potential relocation out of state, the stakes are high and often emotional. These issues frequently occur after a divorce.
Both the VA and Maryland courts, even within the same courthouse do not always make consistent rulings. That is why it is essential that you get the right legal advice early on when one parent is planning on moving out of state.
At the Law Offices of SRIS, P.C. we take our job seriously and recognize that it is important that we do our best to help you reach a negotiated resolution of issues in VA & MD without court involvement.
