Custody and Visitation

The Intake Unit handles requests from citizens wanting to file for the custody and visitation of a child(ren).  Any person interested in starting the process should contact the on-call Intake Officer at 703-746-4144.  The Intake Officer will review the requirements for filing a petition.  If you meet the requirements, the Intake Officer will tell you what information to bring to your appointment.  Appointments must be made with an Intake Officer in order to file for custody and visitation.  Typically, at your appointment you need to provide the current contact information for the mother and father and child(ren), which includes current addresses, current phone numbers, dates of birth and social security numbers.  You must be a resident of Alexandria and the child must currently reside in Alexandria.  The Juvenile and Domestic Relations Clerk's office charges a $25.00 filing fee.
