Child Custody in Virginia

In Virginia, there are two types of custody – legal and physical. Physical custody refers to the parent with whom the child will spend most of the time. Legal custody, on the other hand, refers to a parent’s right to make decisions regarding the child’s medical care, education, and religion. Generally, family courts believe the involvement of both parents is in the best interests of a child.

Below is a list of some of the factors a judge will examine to determine child custody decisions:

  • The mental and physical health of the child
  • The mental and physical health of the parents
  • The role each parent has in the child’s upbringing
  • The needs of the child
  • The existing relationship the child has with each parent
  • How well either parent will actively support the other’s relationship with the child
  • Each parent’s ability to work together and resolve child-related disputes
  • The reasonable preference of the child
  • If either parent has a history of abuse or neglect

With the exception of domestic violence, family courts generally try to weigh each factor equally when determining child custody.
