As Williamsburg, Virginia, attorneys who practice regularly in local courts, we advise clients on strategies to settle issues by agreement, outside of court. In most situations, we can resolve these issues without going to trial, saving the client from the emotional exhaustion, expense and delays that can result from litigation. Trial is inevitable in some cases, but our attorneys are experienced in preparing for and litigating a variety of family law issues.
As family law attorneys, we can help you navigate a contested or uncontested divorce as well as a divorce on fault or no-fault grounds to include issues such as:
- Equitable distribution

- Spousal support
- Child custody
- Child support
- Qualified domestic relations orders
- Stepparent adoptions
Our attorneys hand draft individualized prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, separation agreements, and custody and visitation agreements.
Sometimes it is necessary to petition the court to enforce, modify or dismiss an existing order because a party is not compliant or because circumstances have changed. Our attorneys regularly practice in local courts and understand the legal basis and burden of proof required to accomplish the client's objective.
