A: I can't say what type of documents you might need as each case is different and depends on the facts surrounding the children. You can review the broad factors the judge considers in any Virginia custody hearing here: https://law.lis.virginia.gov/vacode/title20/chapter6.1/section20-124.3/

You would be best served to speak with a family law attorney local to Richmond, as it is always difficult to fight a case from out-of-state.
