How to file for custody in Virginia

Filing for custody in Virginia Beach requires one of two documents. If you’ve never had a custody order before you must file an initial petition with the court and pay a filing fee. If you already have a custody order, filing to change custody requires a motion to amend.

Both documents will include the reasons why you’re asking for custody as well as the information related to the other parent and the child. The process for getting custody can be complex. There are a host of factors that the court must consider. I highly recommend that you seek out the services of Deering Hedrick, in order to properly prepare your case and ensure that you have the necessary evidence in comparison to the factors that the court’s going to consider.
