Many people are worried about the potential effects of coronavirus on their health and their job. While some parents are struggling to juggle home schooling their children with their workday, others are concerned with just seeing their children. If two parents share custody of their kids, they may have questions how to handle their agreement during this viral pandemic. Fortunately for families all across Virginia, experts have suggestions for how to handle this aspect of child custody.
Families in Virginia come in many varieties, and sometimes, children are raised by other relatives besides their parents. The recent opioid crisis has resulted in a rise in the number of grandparents who are raising their own grandchildren. This is because adults addicted to opioids are often unable to raise their children. Though most grandparents are more than willing to take on the responsibility, child custody is straining their financial resources. One out-of-state lawmaker is hoping to help grandparents with the added costs.
When a romantic relationship comes to an end and there are children involved, parents in Virginia must make multiple decisions. While the ultimate goal for most parents is to ensure that the transition is as easy as possible for the child, it is sometimes difficult for parents with strained personal relationships to come to a child custody agreement on their own. Fortunately, there are a variety of different options.
When a couple in Virginia chooses to divorce, they often want nothing more than to move on to the next chapter of their lives without worrying about remaining civil with their ex-spouse. However, that is rarely an option for couples who have children together. Even when they have a child custody agreement that works for all parties, there may need to be additional conversations when schools close for the summer.
