Navigating Child Custody and Support

A Beneficial Guide from Wilson C. Pasley, PLC

When it comes to the well-being of children during a divorce, understanding the nuances of child custody and support becomes paramount. At Wilson C. Pasley, PLC, we focus on the interests of your children, ensuring they receive the care and support they deserve amidst the changes in their family structure. This guide will navigate the essential aspects of child custody and support, providing clarity and direction for parents in Roanoke, VA.


Understanding Child Custody Laws in Virginia

Child custody arrangements dictate the framework for how parents will share responsibilities and time with their children. Virginia law focuses on the best interests of the child. It considers factors such as the age of the children, the role of each parent in the child’s life, and any special needs of the child.


Custody is not about where the child lives. It also encompasses legal custody, which involves decisions about the child’s education, religious upbringing, and medical care. At Wilson C. Pasley, PLC, we strive to create custody agreements that reflect the unique needs of each family. This ensures that both parents play a significant role in their children’s lives, irrespective of marital status.


Securing Fair Child Support Agreements

Beyond custody, child support is crucial for maintaining the child’s standard of living. The Commonwealth of Virginia calculates child support obligations using a specific formula. It considers the income of both parents, the cost of health insurance, child care expenses, and the custody arrangement.


Our goal at Wilson C. Pasley, PLC is to ensure that child support agreements are fair, reflecting the financial responsibilities of both parents while prioritizing the needs of the children. We work diligently to navigate the complexities of child support calculations, advocating for agreements that ensure your children’s financial stability and well-being.
