Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: This is general information for educational purposes only and is not legal advice. No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site. You may also be offered a phone call, but those don’t come from me and are offered by the website and you are under no obligation to accept.

I am sorry to hear about this situation. Please, clarify:

1) How old are the children?

2) Are there formal custody orders in place, or, not? Who is the "managing" custodian?

3) What are you trying to do here, i.e. what is your goal?

Lawyer: Ely, Counselor at Law replied 7 months ago

Thank you. What someone in your situation can do is file for modification of custody, asking for you to have the children. See HERE. The Court will consider changing custody and giving it to you if you can prove that:

1) There's been a material change in the situation since the last court order, and

2) It is in the best interest of the children. See link above for more.

Ergo, someone in your situation may wish to consider filing such a petition. Using an attorney is recommended, but not mandatory. Let me know if you need leads to pro bono/low cost attorneys in VA.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
