Life is complicated and things do not always go as you planned. The end of a relationship can be a very stressful and difficult time in your life.

Whether you need help with a separation agreement, property settlement agreement, divorce proceeding, alimony, child custody and child support, our attorneys can assist you through this confusing time.
Richmond Divorce, Child Custody, & Child Support Lawyer
The court system can be confusing in family law cases. Family law matters are heard in Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court and in Circuit Court. The court in which you file depends on the issues in your case. For example, divorce can only be heard in Circuit Court and not in Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court. In a divorce proceeding, Circuit Court will also hear the issues relating to the divorce such as custody, alimony, child support, visitation and the like. If spouses are separated, and before grounds for divorce exist, Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court can hear issues regarding child custody, visitation, and child support. Issues resolving custody, visitation and child support of unmarried couples are also heard in Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court. Our attorneys can clarify the process, help you navigate through the legal system, and will keep you informed.
Many people view premarital agreements as applying only to wealthy people who want to protect their assets in the event of divorce. However, premarital agreements are entered into by couples of all types of financial means. Deciding to enter into a premarital agreement may not be an easy choice, but for many couples entering into marriage it is the right choice.
Premarital agreements allow couples to address many issues that apply to their pending marriage. Premarital agreements can address issues such as spousal support or waiver of support; division of property in the event of separation, divorce, death, or other circumstance addressed in the agreement; and making of a will or trust to carry out the details of the agreement. Our attorneys can advise you on how to craft a premarital agreement that will best protect your interests.
