Family Law – Divorce – Child Custody

Protect Your Family in Divorce

Whether you’ve made the decision to end an unsuccessful marriage and need a separation agreement, been served with a divorce action from your spouse, or you’ve discovered your spouse is having an affair, you need an attorney who will advise you of your options and protect your interests. This is what’s known as Family Law. As a divorced mother of two, I understand that this is an emotional, confusing process.  I will work diligently to help you navigate the legal system and protect your interests.

The first step is to call my office and schedule a consultation.  During this appointment, we will discuss the process of getting a divorce in Virginia, the specifics of your case, and options on how best to proceed.  While the majority of divorces don’t go to trial, we will be prepared in the event that a settlement is not possible.  You will never be encouraged to accept an offer that is less than what you are entitled to, or agree to something just to speed things along.  I will use every tool at my disposal to get you the most favorable outcome given the facts of your case.

I assist clients with a wide range of family law and divorce issues, including:

Contested Divorce

Uncontested Divorce

Negotiating and drafting legal documents

Separation Agreements

Premarital agreements

Custody agreements and parenting plans

Property settlement agreements

Mediation of divorce and family law issues

Child Support, Spousal Support, and Enforcement

I will work vigorously to represent your interests in a child or spousal support case. Whether you are the party asking for spousal support or being asked to pay, I am here to help.

The court considers several factors when determining custody and visitation. Clients seeking to obtain or change custody and visitation need an attorney. One who understands those factors, and how to gather the evidence that highlights the client’s strengths and exposes the opponent’s weaknesses.

As a divorced mother of two, I can relate to your experiences, while advising you on the best course of action for you situation.
