One of the Most Capable Visitation Law Firms in Chesapeake Defends Your Visitation Rights

More than two decades of experience helping parents through simple and complex visitation questions

Virginia family law generally allows parents who don’t reside with their children the right to regular visitation time. The state recognizes how essential it is for children to enjoy meaningful bonding time with both of their parents, and goes to great lengths to protect the rights of nonprimary or noncustodial parents to maintain a relationship with their children.

Still, certain complex issues may arise regarding the visitation rights of parents and even grandparents. Norfolk visitation attorneys Harding, Harding & Harding Attorneys at Law are prepared to advise Virginia parents on any visitation matter.

Modifications to visitation agreements

Almost any family law order — custody, child support, visitation — can be modified if circumstances allow. However, it’s essential to prove a material change in the circumstances of one of the parents, such as:

  • Noncompliance with existing orders
  • Age and development of the child
  • Income changes
  • Relocation

You must also prove that your proposed change to the visitation agreement is truly in the best interests of the child.

Relocation, visitation rights and Chesapeake visitation lawyers

Parents’ lives change. New jobs, new marriages, and other personal issues can take parents further away from their children, even to a different state.

If you are a Virginia parent with an existing visitation agreement, relocation can affect your visitation agreement. The law mandates that you provide the other parent with 30 days’ notice about your move, including your new address. This notification gives the courts and the other parent time to consider whether or not the move warrants modifications to your existing visitation agreement. A knowledgeable Chesapeake visitation attorney can explain in more detail how the courts might deal with your particular case. Contact Harding, Harding & Harding Attorneys at Law for further information.
