Are you looking for a professional and compassionate Richmond divorce attorney to assist you with complex child custody matters? In a divorce, child custody is one of the most contested and emotional issues. At DeFazio Bal, our legal team has 50 years of combined experience helping family through difficult divorces. We are dedicated to helping you reach your desired outcome, protecting your family's best interests every step of the way.
Child custody is a very important decision which can be made through mediation or in litigation. We understand that every family's circumstances are different and therefore we need to find the best solution for your children and family.
If the decision is left to a judge, there are many different factors which may be considered when an agreement is made. These factors include the home environment each parent can provide, any evidence of domestic violence or drug and alcohol abuse, and the financial assets and earning capability of each parent.
There are certain situations which can come up in life that may require you to change the terms of your child custody order. For example, if you get a new job, your income changes drastically, or you or your spouse gets remarried. You will need to prove why the modification is necessary and with our help, you can apply for a legal modification. Simply deciding with your spouse that the child custody or visitation schedule will change is not sufficient.
