Child custody: Is a holiday exchange your best option?

Virginia parents who have recently navigated divorce may be worried about the upcoming holiday season. Especially if the co-parents in question tend to disagree about child custody issues, finding a "new normal" for how a particular family celebrates holidays and special occasions after divorce may be quite challenging. Holidays can be stressful even for married couples, so when a marriage breaks up, parents are wise to try to agree on a plan that keeps children's best interests in mind and stress levels as low as possible.

Where to seek support for complex Virginia child custody issues

When Virginia couples divorce, they must resolve a number of issues before the court can issue a final decree. Such issues typically refer to property division matters, as well as alimony, child support (if spouses have children) and child custody topics. The latter can spark contention between spouses if they disagree about what is best for their children.

What kind of financial support will you get in your divorce?

The financial changes brought by a divorce are significant. The end of a marriage will require both parties to adjust to changes in their retirement savings, disposable income and their lifestyle expectations. This is not always easy to manage, especially for a spouse who does not work or earns significantly less than his or her partner.
