Therapy notes no longer protected in Virginia

Posted on Nov 17, 2008 by Hofheimer Family Law

Effective July 1, 2008 Virginia Code Section 20-124.3:1 has been repealed.

What this means is that your therapy records are no longer protected from coming into evidence in a custody case and that your therapist can be required to testify.

Likewise, your husbands therapy records are not protected and his therapist can also be required to testify.
