Northern Virginia Non-Parent Custody Attorneys
Cases involving grandparent’s rights in Virginia are extremely complex legal matters that require the attention of a skilled child custody lawyer. In short, if one parent gains sole custody of the children, he or she is not legally required to allow the grandparents any visitation rights.
Grandparents do have the right to petition the court for custody or visitation rights, but it is not a foregone conclusion that your request will be approved. The northern Virginia grandparent’s rights attorneys at Hale Ball understand the challenges inherent in any custody battle, and we know what it takes for grandparents to prevail in these matters.
In most cases, the care of the child and decisions about who has access remain with the parents, with very few exceptions. If there is a concern that the parents are unfit or that the child’s welfare could be compromised if the relationship with the grandparents is terminated, a case could be made for court-ordered visitation rights.
