Keep your child’s best interests at the heart of a custody case

Child custody is a serious matter that can greatly affect the life of the child. When the parents don't agree on matters relating to the child, it is sometimes necessary to seek help from the court to determine the child custody matters. Last week, we discussed one such case. If you recall, we discussed how Kelly Rutherford has been in a battle over her two children in an international child custody case.

While the Rutherford case has been lengthy and very bitter, it is often possible to settle child custody matters in a timely manner. In Virginia, the best interests of the child are taken into consideration in child custody cases. This means that the court looks at situations in a different light than what parents might look at them.

We know that battling it out for your child isn't pleasant; however, we also know that it is very important. We can work with you to help you understand theĀ considerations that will affect your child custody case. We can help you learn how each of those considerations might alter the outcome of the case.

It is important for our readers to know that child custody matters aren't limited only to parents who have divorced. Unwed parents can also have custody battles when they don't see eye-to-eye about the matters that have to do with the child. Even in those cases, the court looks into the child's best interests. No matter who complex the child custody case, we can help you to explore the available options so you can make an informed choice about how to handle your side of the case.
