We have represented over 25,000 Virginians across 4 decades in business and know that every legal case is always…personal. Especially family law.

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, separation, and other family legal disputes. Our Richmond family law attorney can also work through specific problems regarding child custody child custody, property division, spousal support, or alimony. In Richmond, Petersburg, and surrounding cities, 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.

In Virginia, the law requires that child support and custody disputes be handled in the best interest of the child (or children) involved. This means our lawyers put an emphasis on what will benefit the child the most. When doing so, we consider multiple factors to win you the title of the primary custodial parent.

We specialize in the following cases:

 

  • Visitation rights
  • Custody rights
  • Paternity cases
  • Child support cases
  • Adoption cases

Experienced Divorce Lawyers Richmond

Our Richmond divorce lawyers can help you decide whether you want to proceed with your divorce the easier way with a Property Settlement Agreement (PSA) or the harder way with court litigation. Virginia law allows you to take whichever approach suits you best. Our trusted and local lawyers can help you work through a PSA that settles most or all of the following issues:

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 the date of separation, 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 assist you in making the right decisions.
