Dealing With Family Law Issues

If you are dealing with a family law issue, we can help. Our attorneys at Rowe & Sitzler, LLP, have helped many families work through these matters during our many years of practice in Bedford County, and we know the difficulties you may encounter. We work to support our clients from both a legal and an emotional perspective. We help you get past these challenges and move on with your life.

The Three Elements Of A Divorce

While divorce is technically a legal proceeding to separate two people who are married, we know it is a whole lot more. Every divorce has three elements; a legal element, a financial element and an emotional element. We know that as you begin the process, the emotional element can seem overwhelming, whether fear of the future, worry about your children or bitterness toward your soon-to-be former spouse.

We Can Help With All These Elements

Sometimes you need an aggressive attorney to protect your rights in court. Sometimes you want a trusted friend to whom you can speak your mind and your heart. And sometimes you need a skilled adviser to help you with the complex financial elements of any divorce.

Our attorney, Emily Sitzler can help with all of these, providing the peace of mind and calm judgment you want during the turmoil of a divorce, separation, child custody or child support disputes or spousal support determination. We also can help with adoption matters, as well as guardianships for adults suffering from legal incapacity.

The Experience You Need

Divorce proceedings bring with them many challenges. Working out a reasonable parent plan is never easy. Each parent may have a different view of what is in the best interests of the child. Nonetheless, arriving at a viable parenting plan that is workable and flexible can help reduce conflict and minimize the stress children experience during and after a divorce.

Our broad experience with these issues allow us to help high net worth individuals and those with sophisticated investments or complex property holdings as well as those with agricultural land or simply a family home. Virginia is an equitable distribution state, meaning property and debts are divided fairly, but not necessarily equally.
