Family Law


When a couple decides to divorce, emotions typically run high. These emotions can lead to a variety of stressful situations, including battles related to child custody, the division of equity, alimony and child support. For these reasons, hiring a compassionate, dedicated and experienced divorce attorney is essential.


If you and your spouse decide to divorce, a variety of issues must be addressed. If you have children, one of these issues is custody. In the state of Virginia, custody is determined based on the best interest of the child. our attorneys will help you fight for sole custody, joint custody or visitation, whichever you prefer.


In the event that your soon-to-be-ex obtains sole custody, child support payments will need to be determined. Our attorneys are diligent when it comes to child support: they do everything they can to ensure the child support awarded is fair and just. However, spousal support (alimony) is never guaranteed and the court determines whether alimony is appropriate on a case by case basis.
