Mediation, Modification, Appeals, and Child Custody Reversal Litigation

Our legal team offers comprehensive legal services related to child custody and related matters, including mediation, filing for legal and physical custody, temporary custody, custody modifications, parenting time rights for non-custodial individuals, grandparent rights, third party rights, child custody appeals and custody reversal litigation. In the state of West Virginia, the courts typically follow the shared custody model, unless extenuating circumstances exist. Each parent is typically granted the same amount of parenting time with the child as existed prior to the divorce.

“Whiteman & Burdette are adept at helping you prove your ability to function as a responsible parent.”

Child Visitation by Non-Custodial Parents

If you are the non-custodial parent, you still have the right to participate in the parenting of your child in most cases. Visitation can be arranged independently by the parents, with the assistance of a mediator, or by court order. Grandparents and other family members may also have a right to maintain a relationship with the child. Divorce does not have to affect the continuity of the relationship with the child that you love and care for. Let us help.
