Alimony and Child Support

In the Commonwealth of Virginia, child support is most often awarded to the custodial parent, or in situations where both parents are sharing custody but there is a considerable difference between the incomes of each parent. In contrast, spousal support is not automatically considered by the Virginia family courts as part of a divorce petition, and must be requested either in a separate pleading if no divorce is pending or requested in the divorce pleading. Family law attorney Claudia Zucker represents parents seeking child support or alimony and support agreement modifications as well as clients who are being petitioned for support.

Divorce in Virginia

Filing for divorce in the State of Virginia is a complicated process that is only made worse by the emotional devastation that often accompanies a dissolution of marriage. An experienced family law attorney can be an invaluable asset before, during, and after the divorce proceedings, and will fight to protect your best interest as it applies to child custody, support, division of property and debts, and more.

Custody and Paternity

Establishing paternity of a child requires a lot more than just a DNA test. The father of a child must be legally recognized as such in order for him to exercise his rights and responsibilities as a parent. In cases where paternity is unsure or contested, it is vital that you seek legal counsel from a knowledgeable family law attorney with experience handling paternity suits.

Disputes over child custody can be emotionally distressing for parents and children. While the state of Virginia prefers both parents to contribute equally to the raising of a child with time-sharing agreements, sometimes this is not possible or is not in the best interest of the child. Involving a family law lawyer can help put an end to custody disputes and assist you in asserting your parental rights. Family law attorney Claudia Zucker represents parents throughout Fairfax County, Virginia, including Reston, Annandale, Springfield, Centreville, Chantilly, Burke, and more.
