International Custody

In particularly contentious and difficult custody cases, a parent might remove or retain a child in a foreign country. We have successfully litigated such cases, and have worked with the State Department (the U.S. is a signatory to the Hague Convention) and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, as they are indispensable resources for tracking abducted children and for providing evidence and expert testimony about the risk factors and effects of abduction on children.

Guardian Ad Litem

Two of our attorneys — who have met Virginia’s special qualifications — serve as Guardians ad Litem in applicable Virginia courts. A guardian ad litem is a court-appointed attorney who provides independent recommendations to the court about a child’s best interests in an abuse or neglect case or in a contested custody case (usually only if there are abuse allegations and/or one or both of the parents are not represented by counsel).
