My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Virginia
I am a divorced father since 2011 with my children's mother having primary physical custody. In 2013, the children's mother moved from Fairfax County to Stafford County which has resulted in 1.5 hour commute times for pickup and drop-offs.
Since 2011, I have re-married to a successful surgeon and moved to a neighborhood with a great school district. I make a strong income and work for a big global consulting firm.
Until recently, I had my attorney file a motion for primary physical custody and the court hearing will be in Stafford County.
How do I convince a Stafford judge that where I live has many advantages versus living in their county? Without bashing Stafford, but promote my household/neighborhood.
My attorney suggested hiring independent education evaluator to provide evidence/findings that my school district is better? Is it worth it?
Any other suggestions regarding experts to leverage?
