Important considerations for determining alimony

Though alimony is a relatively common matter that must be resolved when two Falls Church residents divorce, it is not always a part of every Virginia divorce. That is because alimony is discretionary for the courts to award and not a mandatory part of ending a marriage. In general, a divorce will include alimony negotiations and deliberations if one of the parties truly needs it to get through their post-divorce life.

What happens if I lose legal custody of my child?

There are two types of child custody: physical custody and legal custody. Some parents focus on physical custody when they go through separations and divorces because physical custody revolves around where a child will live. A parent who has physical custody of their child is charged with providing for that child's day-to-day needs. Parents can share physical custody, or it may be given to just one of a child's parents.
