When a parent is awarded sole custody in Virginia, he or she is the primary caregiver and has the right to make all decisions regarding the children’s schooling, religious affiliation and medical care without consulting the other parent. The non-custodial parent is allowed scheduled visitation and holidays according to a court-approved arrangement.
When one parent is seeking sole custody, there is sometimes a threat to the other parent’s ability to have a meaningful relationship with his or her children. Parents on both sides of these matters require the assistance of a qualified family law attorney who knows the law and has the ability to protect their interests.
