Experienced Advice From Staunton & Harrisonburg Lawyers.

A global pandemic, civil unrest, and a tumultuous election season have made 2020 a highly unusual year. Our Staunton and Harrisonburg lawyers have continued working tirelessly to protect the legal rights of our clients. During these challenging months, we’ve seen an increase in requests to discuss divorce options. For many marriages that were already struggling, the continued complications of 2020 have made them untenable. Here are some critical elements to understand when considering divorce:

  • You Have Options: There’s no “one size fits all” approach to divorce. Depending on your economic situation, ability to communicate with your spouse, and age and needs of your children, some methods may work better than others. For couples looking for a discreet, economical, and cooperative divorce, we recommend the collaborative process. By working together and with your attorneys, couples can stay out of the courts and prioritize their mental health during the process. Contact our team to learn about other options to consider.
  • Dive Deep Into Your Finances: Take advantage of extra time at home to research and understand your financial situation. This is critical to planning for the economic cost of divorce and building a separate household. We can help our clients make arrangements for child and spousal support, if necessary.
  • Parenting During A Pandemic: Discussing child custody is always challenging, and during a pandemic, it’s even more difficult. If you and your partner can discuss your situation in an amicable manner, we recommend you plan for what is in the best interest of your children. For clients in acrimonious situations, write down your individual expectations and bring them to your consultation.
