A Skilled Virginia Child Custody Attorney Fights for Your Rights To Raise Your Child

Resolving issues vital to your child’s future

Child custody is one of the most difficult issues that a parent faces during divorce. At the Chesterfield, Virginia law office of Hennessy-Reveley & Associates we are dedicated to protecting your rights to raise
your child in a healthy, thriving environment. We
represent families in Virginia in all aspects of child custody and
visitation, including:

  • Primary, shared and joint custody arrangements
  • Visitation rights
  • Grandparent visitation
  • Modification of custody and visitation orders
  • Enforcement of orders
  • Decisions related to religion, education and upbringing of the child

Advantages of mediation

Children are best served when parents maintain a cordial relationship. Through the structured process of mediation, couples can often set aside hostility and can agree on key decisions affecting their children. Mediation can be a
highly effective tool for parents to preserve their children’s well-being and the stability of their lives during the turbulent process of divorce. Mediation takes some of the stress out of child custody conflicts, and it places important child-raising decisions in the hands of the parents rather than the court. We very carefully develop mediation strategies that carefully guide the negotiating process toward a healthy resolution.

Supporting litigation

In some cases, litigation is necessary to protect a child’s best interests. When one parent refuses to compromise or when that parent expresses hostility toward the other parent, negotiations fail. Sometimes, a parent may even pose a danger to the child’s well-being. In these cases, litigation is the most appropriate forum for establishing parental rights. Our firm’s methodical approach to litigation enables you to feel confident that your children are protected and that your parental rights are secure.
