Norfolk Alimony Attorney
Child Support And Spousal Support
Financial support for children or an ex-spouse can be among the most contentious and disputed aspects of a divorce or separation. While everyone wants the children to be provided for adequately, no one wants to overpay for child support or spousal support. Whether you are the paying spouse or the spouse who will receive support payments, it is critical to work with an attorney who can protect your interests throughout the process.
At Goldblatt, Cohen & Legum, P.C., we can help you. Our Norfolk alimony lawyers have been representing Virginia clients in spousal support and child support, and other divorce-related matters, since 1927.
Our attorneys can help with all aspects of support in your divorce or separation, including:
- Accurate assessments: An attorney from our law firm can look at your financial situation to give you a reasonably accurate assessment of what you can expect from the court’s support determination.
- Deviations: When appropriate, we can petition the court for a deviation from the expected support order. Depending on the circumstances, we might be able to obtain a reduced or increased level of support.
- Negotiation and litigation: In many cases, our lawyers are able to arrange a support agreement through simple negotiation or mediation between the parties. When this is not possible, we will use our decades of trial experience to protect your interests aggressively in litigation.
- Support modifications: After a divorce is finalized, our lawyers can help you petition the court for a modification of the support orders if there has been a substantial change in circumstances. These circumstances can include job loss or other major changes in employment, changing needs of the child, personal injury awards or other changes.
