Military Timesharing & Child Visitation Rights Lawyers In Fairfax

Helping Military Families Throughout Northern Virginia

The military life creates a unique complication with separated families. The active-duty military member does not stay in one location for long, so divorces and custody span state lines and require a personalized approach to help keep everyone’s best interests in mind. Divorced spouses need to establish a military custody schedule that takes into consideration the active duty member, the mother, the state where the child resides, and how the education, medical care, and needs of the family will affect visitation.

Few lawyers have embraced technology the way we have. We use creative and innovative ways to help our local and forward-deployed military clients with their cases and save them money. Our lawyers and staff members will interact frequently with our current and prospective military clients via “Zoom”, “Facetime”, “Cisco Webex”, “Skype”, or other means of video teleconferencing. Setting up a video teleconference with one of our attorneys for an initial client consultation is easy. Just give us a call or send us an email and we’ll make it happen.

Protecting Children & Service Members’ Best Interests

Custody agreements for military parents can be complicated as deployments, TDY schedules, PCS, and overseas assignments can significantly impact the visitation and custody of minor children. Family law judges will look at all aspects of your schedule to determine custody and visitation, and help provide the best possible scenario to ensure that the children are able to spend time with both parents and maintain normal schedules that accommodate school, vacation, and holidays.

Some factors that can be taken into consideration to create a unique military times haring and custody schedule can include:

  • PCS schedules
  • Mobilization to overseas assignments
  • Deployment schedules
  • TDY orders
  • Where the custodial parent resides
  • Proximity to extended family
  • School location and calendar
  • Holiday and vacation times

When you work with our Fairfax military divorce lawyers, we can look into all aspects of your career and help you create a unique visitation schedule for your life. Federal laws protect the rights of military parents, and you should always have an experienced lawyer on your side.
