Entrust Your Case To An Experienced, Dedicated Divorce Attorney

Even if you feel confident about your decision, divorce is not an easy process. You are being asked to negotiate major financial matters that will greatly impact your future at a time when you are least equipped to think about practical concerns or to negotiate calmly.

Divorce is never a box of chocolates

For these reasons and many more, it is important to find a family law attorney you can trust and feel comfortable with. This person will be your guide and your advocate throughout the process.

This is how we view our role at Herrenkohl Law Office. With more than 25 years of legal experience, we will protect your interests and the interests of your children as we seek divorce outcomes that meet your short-term and long-term financial needs.

Elements Of A West Virginia Divorce

There are numerous issues to address during divorce, including:

  • Division of assets: All property and debt need to be divided equitably, which we discuss in more detail on our Property Division page.
  • Issues related to children: If you have minor children, decisions about child custody and child support are critical. We’ll help you seek custody or visitation and ensure that the child support award is an accurate reflection of financial need and ability to pay.
  • Spousal support: This is not automatically ordered, but remains an important tool for some couples with unbalanced income and earning potential. Spousal support can be temporary or permanent, and the decisions of whether to order it and how much should be paid are decided by a judge or by equal agreement of both parties.

Your own divorce may require additional services or a unique approach. We offer comprehensive representation meant to address all of your needs and goals.
