Divorce

Nearly every aspect of your life is touched by divorce. Whether it’s your children, assets, marital or separate debts, your life will be put under the microscope during a divorce proceeding. It’s a hard and emotional time, but that’s even more of a reason to hire an experienced divorce attorney.

Property Division

Do you know what constitutes marital and separate property? Are you aware that your separate property can be claimed by one spouse or both? Without an attorney to guide you, property division might be distributed unfairly or illegally by the other party. For example, your spouse might attempt to give a family member money to avoid distribution by the court.

Spousal Support

You or your spouse may owe the other either temporary or permanent spousal support/alimony. Every divorce case is different and depends on the circumstances. Therefore, alimony will be determined by multiple factors. Some of these factors are the length of marriage, the ability to earn income, age, education, and health of the party seeking support. Fault is also an issue in contested spousal support cases.

Child Custody

The well-being of the children is the most critical part of any child custody action. All too often, a divorce or separation hurts them more than any of the adults involved. As a loving, caring parent, you want to ensure that you limit the damage as much as possible.

As a child custody law firm, you get a service that quickly and efficiently deals with the court process. With thorough research and extensive family law knowledge, we expedite the process as much as possible to avoid putting the whole family through undue stress and pain.

Child Support Payments

In West Virginia, if you are the primary caregiver, you are entitled to child support payments.  Typically child support is determined by a formula.   With us by your side, you won’t only better understand how to apply, but you’ll also receive more information on the child support formula. This formula is used by the courts to determine how much money must be paid and by whom, and for how long.
