At Herrenkohl Law Office, we know that the child custody portion of a divorce is the first priority of many people in West Virginia. Our clients’ children are almost always considered before liquid asset division, real estate decisions or even spousal support agreements.

It is no surprise that our clients place their loved ones above material matters. However, in the context of a divorce, a balanced approach is often better than focusing entirely on one aspect. The family unit and the communal property of the marriage are intertwined legally in ways that are sometimes difficult even for family court judges to understand. Changing one aspect often affects the others in unexpected ways.

This is why we always advise our clients to be as prepared as possible for divorce negotiations. That often involves preparing your relevant documents even before an initial meeting. We often require many different types of personal and financial records before we are able to get the results that our clients expect when it comes time to settle on a custody and visitation agreement.

We know that our clients tend to put the futures of their children before their own. Because of this, we put our clients’ interests first. Everything we do in a divorce case is focused on protecting our client’s position as a parent and as an individual, from the initial consultation to the explanation of the final agreement.

Whether the goal is a customized schedule or a more traditional shared parenting support agreement, we attempt to communicate the details and secure the desired outcome by using every legal and procedural method available. Please continue to our main website to learn more.
