Family Law

Matters involving the family are very emotional and you want to work with an attorney who will treat you with respect and fight for you during this emotional time. You also want to work with an attorney who will treat your case individually, family law matters are very personal and no two clients have the same needs. At the Law Firm of Diane P. Toscano, we help with the following family law matters:

Divorce

We can help resolve both contested and uncontested divorce matters and the matters related to property division, child custody, parenting plans, parenting time, and support payments. We will take the time to listen to your concerns, and do our best to help you achieve your goals whether it is in the Courtroom or through mediation. Call us to discuss your options before separating – you need to know how the laws in Virginia will affect this outcome.

Custody and Visitation

It is no secret this may be the most difficult challenge couples face during divorce. Parents often have significant differences in what they believe is right for their children. However, resolving custody and parenting time matters must be done with the best interests of the children in mind, and whenever possible, keeping the discussion between the parents as civil as possible. After all, a child needs to have a loving relationship with both parents. We can help you with this challenging aspect of divorce and will serve as a strong advocate for what you believe is best for your children.

Child Support

Child support is based on several factors including the parent’s income, child’s needs, and living arrangements. There are specific guidelines used in Virginia and the amount of any support payments are reviewed every three years. If your child has any specific needs that could impact the amount of support paid or received, talk with us prior to your case being heard in court so we can provide accurate information to the courts.
