Divorce and child custody disputes can be difficult for both Virginia parents and their children. While the children need to know that they are loved and cared for, the parents may be too wrapped up in their own drama to always recognize this. If parents are not on good terms, one or both may not abide by the parenting schedule, which could put the children in a tenuous situation.
Even worse, some parents may show up on some designated transfer days and not show up on others. This may create confusion on the part of both the parent expecting the other to pick up the child as well as the child who may be left feeling unwanted. In some cases, parents who fail to show for scheduled visits may be fined or given the opportunity to make that time up.
