Child Custody


Types of custody in Virginia include sole custody, joint custody, and shared custody.  When a case is brought before the Court, parent’s and grandparents’ rights to see their child or grandchild may be greatly limited or expanded.  A support hearing may determine each parent’s financial responsibility to the child until it reaches adulthood.  A court can enter a permanent order regarding custody and visitation that may be difficult to change at a later date, even if the parent or grandparents’ circumstances change. 

Brendan Dunning handles: child custody, visitation, support, paternity, and modification of child custody orders.  He is an experienced trial attorney who has tried cases in Halifax, Charlotte, Mecklenburg, Lunenburg, and many other Virginia counties.
