I am seeking visitation with my grandchild. Can a court give me visitation? What do I have to prove?

The short answer is that, yes, Virginia law does recognize that "non-parents" can play indispensable roles in the lives of children and affords those non-parents the opportunity in some circumstances to obtain the same rights that a biological parent enjoys.


Litigating a personal injury claim, particularly when the injured plaintiff's hard, calculable damages are relatively nominal (less than $10,000), will often fail a "cost-benefit" analysis. In other words, the probable amount of a jury's verdict will not be sufficient to warrant the expense to the injured plaintiff necessary to obtain that jury verdict. If a verdict is likely to be in the range of $10,000 - $15,000, and your attorney is going to receive a one-third contingency fee, what reasonably prudent person is going to spend $5,000 or more, in the hope of receiving a net of $7,500? It simply does not make good business sense.
