Richmond Child Custody Attorneys

The questions of child custody and visitation determination, whether they happen as part of a divorce or between parents who never married, are some of the most emotionally fraught people can face. No one wants to suffer any diminishment of his or her relationship with his or her child.

Our attorneys can help you build the strongest case for your rights as a parent.

Child Custody

Child custody is comprised of two components:

  • Legal custody — This refers to the right to make important decisions regarding your child's life. Education, health care and religion are some of the areas where this decision-making power is relevant. Parents often share legal custody.
  • Physical custody — This refers to the parent with whom the child resides. In most instances, parents will share physical custody of the child, with the child residing primarily with one parent. The courts generally encourage arrangements where both parents play a major role in their child's life.


Visitation is crucial to parents and grandparents being able to maintain an active role in a child's life. We recognize the importance of preserving those most important relationships. Doing so helps provide a child with a sense of emotional stability and security.
