Parental relocation after a divorce

Many parents in the Harrisonburg area are divorced. Working out child custody and visitation agreements after a divorce can be a complicated affair. Life does not always stay the same, and sometimes, a parent finds themselves facing the need to move somewhere else. Whether the move is for a job or personal reasons, parental relocation can make child custody complicated.

What is physical custody?

When parents split, there are important issues to sort out. However, this doesn't easily occur when parents do not agree. Physical custody is an important aspect of settling a child custody dispute. Matters of physical custody can come up when Virginia residents go through divorces, choose to separate from their partners or problems arise in existing custody plans. On its most basic level, physical custody covers where a child will live and which parent will be responsible for their day-to-day needs.

Child custody can be a very complicated topic in the world of family law. That is because divorcing and separating parents can have different ideas about what they believe to be the best ways to raise their kids when they are no longer under the same rooves. In the end, parents may share custody of their kids or one parent may be granted the physical custody of them so that the children have only one place to call home.

What is visitation?

After a divorce, a set of Virginia parents will have to learn to live in a new scheme where their children will share time between them.
