Collaborative Divorce: A relatively new way to resolve the issues in a divorce is the process of a collaborative divorce. It has been proven that the agreements made in this process are often more easily adhered to, as they are established in this process with the help of legal counsel, as well as other experts that may be necessary.

Prenuptial Agreement: While prenuptial agreements were rare in the past, currently many couples find that getting the financial agreements resolved prior to getting married is a good plan. This is an important legal document for those who are business owners, or have a large number of property or assets that they need to protect in marriage.

Annulment: Legal annulment is different from a religious annulment. The court can rule that the marriage was void, and the parties can move forward as if the marriage never occurred. An annulment can be sought under specific reasons.

Divorce Mediation: Mediation is an extremely valuable tool in conflict resolution. When the two parties involved in a divorce simply cannot come to an agreement, it may be the best option to contact a divorce mediator to help you through the process. Using mediation in divorce and finding out more about mediation could help you to understand the process and whether it is right for you.

Child Custody: There are few issues that raise more concern in a divorce than that of child custody. There are many factors that will influence a court decision on custody. There are also potential legal issues surrounding a modification of child custody, third party custody, relocating a child out of state, or relocation of a parent out of state.

Grandparents' Rights: Do you have rights as a grandparent? Richmond law allows for grandparents to have access to their grandchildren through a court order under certain circumstances.

Child Support: How will Richmond law affect the issue of child support in your case? This legal issue requires skill and experience from your attorney to ensure your objectives are pursued. How the matter of determining gross income for child support is done, or problems regarding your ex not paying child support, or the need for a child support modification, issues regarding parental alienation or other matter should be addressed with legal help.

Legal Separation: When a couple is not yet ready to divorce, either for religious reasons, financial reasons or when they are still hoping to resolve their marriage, it may be necessary to arrange a legal separation agreement. These are critical legal documents and how they are drafted could affect a future divorce should it take place later.

Child Protective Services: In certain cases, Child Protective Services are involved in child custody legal matters. If you have run into a problem or issue with CPS, our firm can help you protect your rights as a parent.

Legal Guardianship: Some children will require a legal guardian. This can be an issue when both parents have passed away, or when they have problems that make them unable to care for their children, either through illness, drug or alcohol use, criminal activity or other issue.

Probate Creating a will or trust is a legally binding, efficient way to pass on your assets to your designated heirs. You have worked your entire life, and it is important that you arrange your affairs so that those you love get the benefits that you want to pass on to them.

Domestic Abuse: One of the most frightening and dangerous situations for individuals and children is that of spousal abuse and child abuse. To protect your health, safety and future, it is crucial that the correct legal action is taken without delay. The effect of domestic abuse on custody awards is a matter that can lead to litigation, with a variety of claims and counter-claims. These are serious issues and require aggressive legal counsel to press forward with your interests as the top concern.

Orders of Protection: When there is a threat of domestic abuse, the court could grant what is termed an ex parte order for protection. This allows for legal protection and relief for the individual who faces the threat of injury or harm. Order for protection vs. harassment restraining orders is something that should be evaluated with the help of a quality attorney familiar with all legal options, and who has a personal concern for your future health and safety.
