Things to know about child custody in Virginia

In 2020, many Virginia parents will file for divorce. Those doing so may find themselves entangled in legal proceedings regarding child custody issues. In this state, rulings on such issues are handed down in a Juvenile Domestic Relations District Court. While the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA) promotes uniformity across the country, every state has its own guidelines and regulations regarding such matters as well.

Should you consider a postnuptial agreement?

No one gets married assuming the marriage will end in divorce at some point in the future. Virginia couples often forgo the opportunity to draft a prenuptial agreement because they assume their marriage will last or they do not have the wealth or assets to necessitate this type of legal protection. In reality, these agreements can benefit everyone, regardless of income level and economic status.
