Determining child custody is often one of the most stressful and emotional areas of family law. It can be difficult to come to terms with the fact that you may no longer be putting your child to bed every night. An experienced attorney can help you understand how child custody law works while advocating for your and your child’s best interests.
At Allred, Bacon, Halfhill & Young, PC, we have more than 40 years of experience working with families throughout Northern Virginia as they develop custody agreements that are tailored specifically to their needs and goals for the future.
In Virginia, custody is both legal and physical. Legal custody refers to decisions that are made about a child’s education, medical care, religion, day care and more. Physical custody refers to where the child will spend his or her time. Typically, when these responsibilities are shared, it is called joint custody. When one parent has primary decision-making and caretaking responsibilities, it is called sole custody.
In most cases, our clients come to us fully aware of the best interests of their children and they are looking for a legal professional who will help them achieve these goals. We give our clients the information they need to make educated decisions about their custody agreements. In the courtroom, our goal is to present the evidence in a way that is most compelling for your case.
In an effort to support the best interests of our clients, we offer competitive fees. Call 703-352-1300 or contact our firm to learn more about how our Fairfax child custody lawyers will personally tailor our services to your needs.
