Representing Alexandria, Arlington, and Fairfax

Considering any abuse in custody cases (Tyler’s Law). (HB 2128)

Legislative Action Summary

This bill would allow courts in Virginia to consider a history of non-family child abuse and domestic violence by one of the parties when determining the custody of the child.  Family abuse is already considered. It gets its name from the courageous, eloquent young man who has testified in favor of the bill below. We came very close in 2017, and I will continue to bring this legislation forward until it is passed.
