Who can help protect your finances during a divorce?

Virginia residents whose marriages are ending might be wondering how to begin financially preparing for a divorce. Most people might come to the conclusion of hiring a lawyer to represent them and to look out for their best interests. However, while a lawyer might offer guidance and advice on how to proceed legally, people might also consider the value of hiring a financial adviser.

Custody case proceeds for former same-sex couple

Same-sex couples in Virginia who have children may be interested in the outcome of a case in which a woman is fighting for custody of the daughter born to her former partner while the two were together. The woman is not biologically related to the child, but she cut the child's umbilical cord, carried the child on her health insurance and lived with the child for four years.

Custody decisions and domestic violence

Virginia parents should be aware of court protections for children who are exposed to domestic abuse. Children who witness domestic abuse are more likely to develop emotional problems such as anger, anxiety and poor self-esteem. They also have difficulty in school and are more likely to drop out, abuse drugs and alcohol, experience teenage pregnancy and become involved in teen dating violence. Children who see signs of verbal or physical abuse between their parents are also more likely to become abusers when they are older.
