We Handle All Family Legal Matters In Virginia

We provide personalized representation to people who need help with any type of family law issue, including:

Divorce: Whether you are going through a simple, no-fault divorce or have significant assets that must be divided, we will help protect your interests and inform you of your options for moving forward.

Child support: Whether you are seeking child support payments or are being asked to pay support, we can help advocate for your interests.

Child custody and visitation: Issues surrounding custody and visitation are often the most contentious aspect of any divorce proceeding. We can help effectively state your case while keeping the best interests of your children in mind at all times.

Divorce order modifications: For the most part, once the terms of a divorce agreement have been finalized they cannot be changed. However, the law recognizes that certain terms, such as those governing support or custody, may need to be modified if your circumstances have substantially changed.

Paternity: Establishing paternity can enable a father to assert his parental rights or allow the mother to begin the process of seeking child support payments from the father. We can help handle all of the legal issues that may arise from paternity test results.
