A Divorce is much more than just the end of your marriage. Many of the issues addressed in your divorce will change the rest of your life and impact everyone you care about. In a divorce you will have many questions you want answers to. Questions such as, do I have to move out, what are my rights with my children, how is child support calculated, and how do we divide our assets and debts?

Your divorce requires careful preparation and can benefit greatly from the guidance of a divorce attorney well versed in West Virginia family laws. Even the simplest Uncontested Divorce will still require a court filing, a division of assets and debts and a detailed documenting of all child custody and child support arrangements.

Many divorces bring very complex or highly contested issues. High Asset Divorces often entail business ownership, stock options, investments, property, inheritance and retirement accounts. Child Custody, as you can imagine, is often the most contested of issues, and fathers are most in need of quality representation.
