Protecting Your Interests In Child Support
Our attorneys will carefully review the terms of any proposed child support order for compliance with Virginia guidelines. We will also verify that all relevant income, including self-employment, seasonal and commission-based income, is included in the calculation. We will protect your rights in any efforts to deviate from the state standards.
When a significant change in circumstances occurs, we can go to court to obtain a modification in a child support order. Our Staunton family law lawyers have represented either parent in petitioning or challenging an adjustment to the level of child support.
Woodstock VA Alimony Law Firm
We will help you determine whether a grant of alimony or spousal support is warranted as part of a divorce settlement, looking at all of the factors the court considers such as:
- The length of your marriage
- The age and health of the parties
- The accustomed standard of living during your marriage
- The income and earning capacity of the parties
If spousal support is applicable, we will advocate for you in determining the amount and duration of support. The rule of thumb is for alimony to be awarded for half the length of the marriage, but it may be shorter in duration or awarded permanently in some cases, depending upon the unique facts of your case.
Spousal support is often negotiated as part of the overall property settlement. We can explore solutions such as letting one spouse keep the house in lieu of alimony.
Miner Martin & Hahn, PLC, will help you resolve child or spousal support disputes at any stage of a divorce, whether you have just filed and need to put a temporary order in place, or your divorce is final and you need counsel in proceedings to modify or enforce an existing divorce decree.
