The basics of child custody laws in Virginia

Virginia child custody laws have some things in common with other states, including that child custody decisions always focus on the best interests of the child. In addition, child custody laws in Virginia give special importance to the wishes of the child. In general, there is typically a custodial parent, who has custody of the child, and sometimes the other parent is non-custodial but enjoys visitation rights with the child. In other circumstances, both parents may share custody.

Methods of collection for delinquent child support in Virginia

When a couple with children divorces, a court often decides that one of the parents should have primary custody of the child, while the other parent is designated the non-custodial parent. The non-custodial parent will then have to provide monthly child support payments to the custodial parent. However, a parent may stop making these payments for any number of reasons. In situations where this occurs, the state of Virginia can use a variety of methods to help enforce a child support order.
