Livesay & Myers has a team of family lawyers serving Fairfax, Manassas, Woodbridge, Fredericksburg, Stafford and all of Northern Virginia. Our attorneys are experienced in handling every sort of family law matter in the Commonwealth of Virginia:
Separation and Divorce. Our family lawyers are experienced in handling every type of divorce case in Virginia. They also have years of experience in the drafting and negotiation of separation agreements and property settlement agreements.
Custody and Visitation. Issues concerning child custody and visitation are among the most emotional and difficult issues in the law. Our team of family lawyers have years of experience representing parents and grandparents in custody and visitation cases.
Child and Spousal Support. Issues of child support and spousal support are often critical to the long-term financial health of both parties in a divorce or custody case. Our family lawyers are intimately familiar with the factors considered by courts in establishing spousal or child support amounts, including state and local guidelines, and with the important tax consequences which are often intertwined with child and spousal support. Finally, our attorneys are experienced with the important issues arising in cases where one party is alleged to be “voluntarily unemployed” or “voluntarily underemployed.”
Military Divorce. Military divorce cases offer special challenges for every attorney. Such cases involve a complex convergence of federal and state laws, and few lawyers fully understand these rules. However, the family lawyers at Livesay & Myers are intimately familiar with issues of military retirement, the Uniformed Services Former Spouses Protection Act, the Survivor Benefit Plan, disability pay, Tricare, and the Servicemembers’ Civil Relief Act.
Adoption. Our adoption lawyers are experienced in representing biological and adopting parents through stepparent, parental placement and agency placement adoptions. They can guide you through the intricacies of the adoption process in Virginia, including the adoption revocation period and the home study process.
Protective Orders. Our family lawyers represent both parties in protective order cases, including court hearings on preliminary protective orders and full protective orders. Generally speaking, courts can grant protective orders for much longer periods of time following notice to the opposing party and an opportunity to be heard at a full hearing. Both parties can benefit from representation by an experienced attorney at that hearing.
Premarital Agreements. Our family law attorneys are experienced in drafting, reviewing and negotiating premarital agreements or “prenups” under Virginia law. Our attorneys can help you draft a premarital agreement, or can advise you as to whether to sign a prenup presented to you by a prospective spouse. You absolutely should not sign a prenuptial agreement before reviewing it with a knowledgeable family lawyer.
