Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • In matters of custody, visitation, and related child care issues, the court’s paramount concern is always the best interests of the child. This standard applies especially in a case of alleged child sexual abuse, and in such cases the court may subordinate the legal rights of the parents to the welfare of the child. In matters of a child’s welfare, trial courts are vested with broad discretion in making the decisions necessary to guard and to foster a child’s best interests. A trial court’s determination of matters within its discretion is reversible on appeal only for an abuse of that discretion, and a trial court’s decision will not be set aside unless plainly wrong or without evidence to support it. Va. Code Ann. § 8.01-680..
