DivorceOur family law lawyers represent clients in all aspects of divorce litigation. Whether there are children involved, significant financial assets, or complex situations like military leave, we are always ready to protect our clients’ interests.

Our family law lawyers in Virginia are always ready to do so, and our divorce attorneys are experienced with contested divorce litigation, giving you a substantial advantage.

Child Custody Law Firm

At our child support law firm, our child support lawyer works with every one of our clients, giving them the chance to explain their situation and concerns about divorce or separation. Our family law attorney can also work through any specific problems regarding child custody, property division, or alimony. In Richmond or Petersburg, our child support lawyers will discuss your options in light of your goals and circumstances, so that you leave our office with a workable plan.

Experienced Divorce Lawyers

Our divorce lawyers can help you decide whether you want to proceed with your divorce the easy way, a Separation and Property settlement Agreement (PSA), or the hard way. Virginia law allows you to take whichever approach suits you best. We can help you work through a PSA that settles most or all of the following issues: property division, spousal support, child support, child custody, and visitation. The PSA should be negotiated and executed on the basis of full and accurate disclosure of each spouse’s assets, liabilities, and income.

For spouses with children, the PSA can be presented in court one year after it was signed, and a no-fault divorce is granted. If there are no children of the marriage, the divorce can be granted six months after legal separation.

Sometimes the hard way is inevitable. If you anticipate difficult issues with respect to the division of property, contested child custody issues, alimony problems, or any other matter that will need to be resolved eventually, we will give you a solid understanding of your rights and responsibilities and let you call the shots from there.
