What’s in your divorce seminar that I can’t find on Google?

I got this question the other day – what’s in the divorce seminar that I can’t find on Google – and it made me laugh a little. In one sense, of course, literally everything you need to know about divorce in Virginia probably IS already in Google. In fact, as you probably are also already…

Which family law attorney should I hire?

It’s probably safe to say that you don’t hire an attorney every day. And, when it comes down to it, it seems like kind of a scary thing to do. How do you know who you’re hiring, or what the experience will be like? Will you be just another name on a file on a…

Divorce help when you can’t afford an attorney

Family law is hard. I know you know, if you’re facing a family law case. And you can bet your boots I know, because it’s what I do day in and day out. I understand the love a parent has for a child, having two of my own. I understand the degree to which a…

Should I agree to his terms in our Virginia divorce?

It often happens that, before I see a client in my office, she and her husband and/or child’s father are negotiating some behind the scenes. Though I often think that’s a good thing (hey, cheaper to agree yourselves than to pay me to negotiate it for you!), it can also be frustrating when a client…

What happens in an initial consultation for divorce or custody?

  We get a lot of consultations that are scheduled, and then rescheduled, rescheduled again, and sometimes even flat out cancelled. I get it. It’s scary. And coming in for a divorce consultation with a real lawyer can seem like a step that you may or may not be ready to take. I’ve compared it…

How expensive is a divorce in Virginia?

“Divorce is expensive.” I know that was certainly my impression, before I started practicing family law, though I can’t tell you now where I heard it first. I can’t tell you, even, what “expensive” means, exactly, because I think it’s probably safe to say that it means a lot of different things to a lot…

Do I need a divorce seminar?

These days, people get information in all sorts of different ways. I was scrolling through Facebook just this morning while I was blow drying my hair, and came across a really interesting article in Forbes about the new ioS 13 update and how we’ll soon be able to protect our private data (like location services)…

He already met with a JAG attorney! What do I do?

If you’re in the military (or your husband is), chances are you have a lot of faith in the military JAG attorneys. In general, military families use JAG attorneys for all sorts of legal issues, so it makes sense that one of the first place you’d think of going when you make the decision to…

Second Saturday: Divorce Seminars for Virginia Women

It’s overwhelming to face a big process that you’ve never faced before. Divorce is no exception. In fact, in most cases, it seems to me like it’s the fear of the unknown – the what COULD happens – that keep most women lying awake at night. In many cases, these fears aren’t real or nameable….

What IS Girl’s Night Out? Should I go?

What IS Girl’s Night Out? If you’ve been around for a little while (you know, kind of scoping us out to see who we are and what we’re about), you’ve probably seen that we have an event series called Girl’s Night Out. But what is it? Should you go? Would you feel weird if you…
