Determining the Best Interest of the Child in Beckley, WV

Child custody and visitation laws in Beckley, WV, are similar to other states in the country. These laws state that the best interest of the minor child in question is always the most important aspect. West Virginia courts use a few different grounds to determine what decision benefits the best interest of the child:

Parental Agreements and Modification of Custody in West Virginia

In West Virginia, the goal for child custody cases is for parents to agree on how to raise their children. Courts require a written parenting agreement. If courts do not accept a new agreement, they must draft a new one. If, however, an agreement has been reached, there are circumstances calling for the modification of future custody agreements. These include:

  • The agreement is harmful to the child
  • Loss of employment/income
  • A parent’s remarriage or new cohabitation
  • Reasonable caretaking arrangement choices (day care, schools, after-school care, etc.)
