  • Separation agreements. Choosing to separate from your spouse is never an easy decision. Our law firm can help you draft a separation agreement that details issues such as property division, spousal support, child custody and child support.
  • No-fault and contested divorce. In Virginia, an uncontested divorce can be granted on no-fault grounds if both people agree to terms. When the divorcing parties cannot come to an agreement on all matters, the divorce is contested and a trial is necessary.  Our attorneys help you determine whether your divorce must be contested and whether fault grounds apply to your situation.
  • Collaborative divorce. For many separating couples, the thought of going to court to settle their divorce is daunting. If both parties can communicate and agree on all pertinent issues, collaborative divorce is a good option. The parties agree not to litigate, and attorneys guide the couple through negotiations.
  • Children’s issues. We are always dedicated to doing what is in the best interests of your children. We handle cases involving children’s issues such as child custody, child support, visitation and parents’ rights.
  • LGBT legal issues. We help lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) individuals in family law cases involving separation agreements, child custody and support orders, prenuptial agreements and more.

We also work with clients on other family matters including:

  • Prenuptial agreements. These is a documents are signed before marriage to establishes how property and assets will be divided in the event of a divorce. Prenups are especially important when one spouse earns significantly more money than the other or there are children involved from a previous marriage.
  • Adoption. Adopting a child should be a joyous occasion for your family. However, the process can be complicated and frustrating. We can guide you through the adoption  process, bringing your child home as soon as possible.
  • Wills, trusts and probate. An estate plan is essential for managing what happens to your wealth and assets upon your death. It helps protect your family and ensures they are taken care of. We can help you in matters relating to wills, trusts and probate.
