The emotional hardship of ending a marriage can be very difficult. Allow us to help make sure the legal process of divorce goes as well as possible. A court must approve your dissolution of marriage petition, and the court will also rule on matters such as custody, child support, alimony (i.e. spousal support, maintenance), and the division of property.
Even if your divorce is an amicable one, it's important to have legal counsel to ensure your rights are fully protected through all stages of the divorce and to ensure that the property is divided properly - minimizing future liability for ex-spouses.
The welfare of your children, of course, is the most important consideration in any divorce. Legal counsel can be vitally important in even the most amicable of divorces. Your child custody agreements should be properly documented and approved by the court. As child custody lawyers, right here in Galax / Hillsville VA, we can help negotiate and implement changes to your visitation agreements, child support, and enforcement of the child custody agreements.
We also work with grandparents and other concerned parties who need to negotiate custody of a child.
