The “Cast of Characters” in Your Custody Case

When it comes to custody, there are a lot of people involved. A lot of people who, besides the obvious participants (you, your child’s father, grandparents, and so on) have an opinion about what is in your child’s best interests. People who’ve never met your child (or have only met your child for a few moments) are going to make recommendations and decisions that will affect your parenting for months and even years to come.

Understanding who these people are and what their role will be will be very important for you in your upcoming custody case! Request a copy of our free report, “The Cast of Characters in your Custody Case” now to find out what you can expect.

When it’s a he said/she said, knock down, drag out custody case, how do the courts know who to believe? It’s a question we get all the time, and it’s a good one!

Special Issues in Virginia Child Custody Case: Relocation

Being stuck living somewhere you don’t want to be isn’t a position any mom wants to find herself in. After all, where you live, especially once you have kids, has a lot to do with the kind of lifestyle you enjoy. Whether you’re able to leave the children in the care of a trusted family member, or whether you feel that you’re almost completely without support—it makes a huge difference in your happiness and your physical and emotional well being (not to mention the well being of your children).

When you move somewhere because of your relationship, you make sacrifices. Maybe you even gave up on a job. At the time, you may have thought they were sacrifices well worth making, but, in retrospect, once things didn’t work out, you might find yourself feeling differently.

Can you move? And, if you move, can you take the children with you? What happens when you become disenchanted with the life you’re currently living, and want to re-make it somewhere else? How do the courts feel?

In this e-report, we provide insight into how Virginia courts deal with relocation cases. Whether you’re moving thirty minutes away, or whether you’re hoping to move across country, you may run into some bumps down the road if your case ends up in the courts. You’ll want to request your free copy of our relocation report now, to make sure you aren’t surprised later on. Request your free copy today!

Special Issues in Virginia Child Custody Case: Reunification

When your child’s father hasn’t always been in the picture, custody is a little bit more complicated. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that just because he hasn’t been involved doesn’t mean that he won’t be able to be involved later—chances are pretty good that he will.

Where your children are concerned, though, you can’t be too careful, and you’ll want to make sure that, if he’s going to be involved, he does so in a way that protects their best interests. It’s hard to suddenly involve a dad who hasn’t been an awesome father all along; in many cases, experts (like therapists) work with attorneys and guardians ad litem to help make sure that dad is reintegrated into the family in a healthy way.

You’ll definitely want to read up on reunification cases if you’re facing one. A good place to start is our reunification free report, which you can request by clicking here!

Breastfeeding as a Factor in Child Custody and Visitation Decisions

Custody cases are difficult, but when your child is breastfeeding, it’s even trickier! Moms can choose to breastfeed their babies for years, and, for many moms, breastfeeding is pretty central to the kind of mom they want to be. It’s an emotional decision, as well as a practical one, and the idea that a possible custodial arrangement could exist that would not respect the importance of the breastfeeding relationship is appalling to many moms.

But how do Virginia courts handle custody when the child in question is breastfeeding? It’s probably the first decision you really get to make for your child regarding how you plan to raise him or her, and the benefits to both mom and baby are well documented. In fact, you’d be hard pressed to have a baby and not encounter about a million different places that extoll the values of breastfeeding, and the importance of the breastfeeding relationship.

How is breastfeeding handled in custody? Find out in this free report, written by former Hofheimer Family Law managing partner, Kristen Hofheimer, for the UVA Law School Law Review.
