My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Virginia
My wife moved out 3 years ago to live with family and deal with substance abuse issues. My then 2 year old daughter and I stayed living in our Virginia home. In those three years I cared for my daughter every other week while my wife cared for her at her parent's home in Maryland the opposite week.
My daughter just started school in Virginia this week and the plan was to have her live with me. We were working toward a divorce and I planned on seeking full custody until my wife becomes sober. Today she told me I am not the biological father. Our daughter was born when we were married. I am hoping the issue of biological paternity will not play a part in custody determination. I am told my daughter has just been introduced to her "dad" this past weekend. Will not being the biological father hurt my chances of getting full custody?
