Fredericksburg Divorce Lawyers
The highly-rated family law, immigration and divorce lawyers at Livesay & Myers, P.C. represent clients in Stafford, Spotsylvania, Fredericksburg and all across Northern Virginia.
Courts in the Fredericksburg area differ significantly from those in the larger jurisdictions to the north. The practices, procedures and expectations of courts in these jurisdictions are not always written down somewhere in a book. Many of them are learned only through years of experience in the courts and before certain judges. Our family law attorneys in Fredericksburg practice in these courts every day—they know the local judges and the local system.
