Managing schedules can be difficult when two parents split up and one or both are military members. Custody agreements may need to be modified frequently in order to accommodate both parents’ work schedules. It is also not uncommon for one parent to move outside of Virginia following a divorce, creating a tough decision when it comes to custody. Garrett Law Group, PLC is a Virginia Beach family law firm which has helped numerous military families work out child custody arrangements that work best for the people who matter most- your children.

Virginia Beach lawyers assisting with child custody and relocation issues for military families
Several unique issues arise in child custody disputes when one, or both, of the parents are in the armed services. These issues can range from how the child will be cared for when one parent is deployed, to disputes over child visitation or child support. These types of disputes are handled differently in the case of military families, than they are from civilian families. This is due to special laws that govern how custody cases can proceed during deployment as well as other issues specific to military personnel. Having a child custody lawyer, who is familiar with how the law applies to those serving our country, is crucial to ensuring that your case proceeds smoothly.
Garrett Law Group, PLC has extensive experience assisting military families with child custody related issues. J.D. Garrett is a former military member and is a parent himself. He has assisted servicemen and women in cases involving custody, child support, the relocation of children, and paternity. This experience gives our firm a deep understanding of the process you are facing. If you are in the military and a child custody case is filed while you are deployed then we will immediately file a request for your case to be stayed until you have returned to take care of your legal issues. We will also work to establish a temporary custody order that will come to an end once your deployment term has ended. Armed services personnel often worry that they will not see their children once a military divorce or custody dispute has begun; we work to make sure that does not happen. Contact Garrett Law Group, PLC today to learn more. In addition to Virginia Beach, we also service Norfolk, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Newport News, Hampton, Williamsburg, and Yorktown, as well as the surrounding counties of Northampton, Isle of Wight, York, and James City.
