A more compassionate approach to child support issues

Raising kids is expensive, and paying for the cost of a child's care is the responsibility of both parents. These are the fundamental concepts behind child support, which is the means through which a non-custodial parent contributes to the cost of caring for his or her child. That said, child support is a far more complex matter than simple equations and laws might suggest. There are many cases in which a degree of compassion is the best way to ensure that a child in Virginia  is provided with what he or she needs.

Southern state considers shared child custody law

Virginia readers may be aware of the trend toward equal child custody splits when parents divorce or end their relationships. There is considerable social science research that supports the idea that children fair better when they continue to spend time with both parents after a family changes structure. This has led many states to consider shared child custody legislation, under which judges are directed to divide parenting time equally between both parents.
