Simon v. Simon

Facts:

Appellant father challenged a decision of the Circuit Court in Virginia, which granted him a no-fault divorce in Fairfax, ruled that appellee mother was not entitled to spousal support, and awarded permanent custody of children to the mother. The mother had originally filed a petition in the circuit court for custody, child support, spousal support, and costs. The father contested the circuit court’s jurisdiction and the custody award.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:
  • Va. Code Ann. § 16.1-241(A) purports to vest in the juvenile and domestic relations district courts exclusive original jurisdiction of all cases involving child custody, visitation, and control. But Va. Code Ann. § 16.1-241(A)(3) expressly makes this jurisdiction concurrent with that of the circuit courts as provided in Va. Code Ann. § 16.1-244 hereof. Section 16.1-244 provides in part that nothing contained in this law shall deprive any other court of the concurrent jurisdiction to determine the custody of children upon a writ of habeas corpus under the law, or to determine the custody, guardianship, visitation or support of children when such custody, guardianship, visitation or support is incidental to the determination of causes pending in such courts, provided that when a circuit court shall have taken jurisdiction thereof by entry of an order relating to custody, guardianship, visitation or support the juvenile and domestic relations district courts shall be divested of such jurisdiction.
  • Objections on grounds of improper venue in suits in equity, with certain statutory exceptions, are waived if not raised within 21 days after service of process by plea in abatement. If the circuit court has jurisdiction of the subject matter, and the proper parties plaintiff and defendant are before it, the objection to venue is a personal privilege of the defendant which is lost if not asserted in time and in the prescribed manner.
