Child support in Virginia is largely established under mandatory guidelines. These guidelines consider factors such as the income of each party, the costs of child care, the costs of health insurance and the amount of time the noncustodial parent spends with the child.
Child support is a challenging area of the law. If you are the custodial parent or the noncustodial parent, we will gain the necessary evidence and documents to provide the Court the best presentation of your case.
Regardless of whether you are the custodial parent or noncustodial parent, it is important to remember that your children do not belong in the middle of this debate. As a family law attorney, I am always dedicated to protecting your children. I will take care to ensure that your children are protected throughout the divorce or separation process, regardless of the disputes between their parents.
Spousal support, also known as alimony, is more flexible than child support. Rather than follow mandatory statutory guidelines, it is generally arranged on the basis of a number of factors. This figure will take into account the separate income of each party, the number of years married and the respective needs of each party among other factors.
Whether you are fully litigating your divorce or using a collaborative law process, an experienced attorney can ensure that you receive a fair and just spousal support arrangement. With more than 30 years’ experience, I understand the range of support that is generally available when considering all of the elements of your particular circumstances. I will make sure that you are protected.
