Defining a Child’s Best Interests

The best interests of a child can mean different things to different people, so the law provides criteria for the GAL to work by. According to Virginia law, the best interests of a child include:

  • The child’s physical and emotional safety
  • The child’s education
  • The child’s healthcare
  • The child’s moral upbringing
  • The child’s wishes, if she is at a sufficient level of understanding
  • The child’s close relationships
