Selecting a West Virginia Child Custody Lawyer

It’s critically important to select attorneys that understand West Virginia laws regarding child custody. The West Virginia court system determines custody based on the best interests of the child. Those interests typically involve the child’s wishes, the parents’ wishes, a parental agreement, and each parent’s involvement in their previous child-rearing responsibilities.

Whiteman & Burdette are adept at helping their clients prove their ability to function as a responsible parent.
