Divorce Archives

What is spousal support?

If you get a divorce in West Virginia, the court may order you to pay or your spouse to pay spousal support. This term, according to the West Virginia Legislature, simply means alimony or support paid to help the other spouse meet living expenses. Either spouse may pay it. The court figures the amount unless there is a prenuptial agreement in effect that lays out spousal support terms.

The facts on annulment in West Virginia

Some residents of the Mountain State have probably heard of the concept of annulment. Married couples that are facing a failing marriage may wonder if they can get their marriage annulled, or they may think annulling a marriage is no different than a divorce. While some married couples in West Virginia can get an annulment, it is not the same as divorce and will not be available to everyone who is married.

Is it worth it to hire a divorce attorney?

Unless you happen to possess professional negotiating experience, odds are that you may end up in over your head if you are headed for divorce court alone. You might fear you are about to lose a lot in the divorce anyway, so why spend money to hire an attorney? The answer is because a West Virginia divorce attorney will know what you are in for and how to help you come out of the divorce with more than you expected.

How your use of social media can impact your divorce

If you, like so many across West Virginia, are working through an impending divorce, you may find that your life has changed dramatically from what is was several weeks, months or even years ago. Often, people who are navigating their way through a divorce find that they rely more on social media, whether for entertainment, to make new connections or what have you. If you are not careful when doing so, however, the things you say and do online may come back to haunt you. At Herrenkohl Law Office, we understand how your use of social media can negatively impact your divorce, and we have helped many clients work their way through separations, divorces and a range of related issues.

Don't face divorce barriers alone

West Virginia has some beautiful scenery; rivers, mountains and more. While marvelous to encounter when the view is what you seek, those same vistas can be scary in unexpected circumstances. They can be faced and overcome, but most experts would urge against trying to do that alone.
