How old do kids have to be in the state of VA to not have to go to visitation? Or have a say in if they want to go?

Leesburg, VA |

My 14 year old daughter has requested numerous times to not go to visitation with her stepfather. How old does she have to be before she gets a say in whether or not she has to go?

Yes there is a court ordered visitation schedule in place. He however limits her involvement with extra activities.

I need a little clarification. You question indicates that she doesn't want to visit her "step" father? Is there court ordered visitation?

We would be happy to offer you a free consultation.

Good Luck,
