Areas of Law Description
- Family Law
Family law matters are among the most personal issues addressed by the legal system. They are often highly emotional, involving the breakup of a marriage, division of sought-after assets and custody of children. At The W. Ware Morrison Law Group, we understand that you are coming to us at one of the most difficult times in your life. Each Virginia Beach family law attorney at our firm works hard to ensure that you receive the best possible representation so that your divorce or custody battle has a successful resolution.
At The W. Ware Morrison Law Group, we understand that you are coming to us at one of the most difficult times in your life. We strive to make your divorce a little easier on you and your family by working hard to protect your rights and interests. Our divorce lawyers in Virginia Beach do not back down from important divorce issues such as child custody and the division of assets, including the family home and retirement plans. We are skilled negotiators but also fight aggressively whenever needed.
* Property Division
During a divorce, the court considers all assets accrued before the marriage, the separate property of each spouse and all those accrued during the marriage to be marital property. Then the court divides the marital assets between the parties as it sees fit, taking into consideration each person’s positive and negative contributions to the marriage and his or her financial needs. Whether property is categorized as separate or marital often depends on the arguments of an experienced divorce attorney. Our Virginia Beach divorce lawyers can also help spouses divide assets through a negotiated agreement.
* Military Divorce
Military marriages have their own special considerations beyond those of civilian divorces. Issues such as whether the nonmilitary spouse qualifies for military benefits programs, medical insurance, the survivor's benefit program and access to the commissary must all be addressed. Our attorneys have extensive experience with military divorce in Virginia and can help guide you through all the relevant issues.
* Child Custody
Most family law issues are highly emotional, but none more so than child custody. Our compassionate child custody lawyers in Virginia Beach strive to provide the legal guidance you need to achieve a workable custody and visitation plan. While we treat you with sensitivity throughout your case, we take an aggressive stance on all the issues to help you achieve a custody arrangement that is in the best interest of you and your children. In addition, we assist with all of types of Virginia Beach child support issues, from obtaining the original order to enforcement and modification.
* Child Support
Both parents have a duty to support their children based on their standard of living and ability to do so. Generally, when one parent has primary physical custody, the parent with visitation makes child support payments to share financial responsibility. Our child custody lawyers in Virginia Beach provide comprehensive child custody and support services to both mothers and fathers. We help parents achieve a satisfactory custody arrangement and support payments according to Virginia state guidelines. We also assist with modifications of Norfolk child support and custody, such as those appropriate when a parent relocates, remarries or has an increase or decrease in income.
* Spousal Support
Spouses either negotiate spousal support themselves in a marital settlement agreement or else the courts determine the amount of alimony, if any, to be paid. When awarding alimony, the courts consider such issues as the standard of living established during the marriage, the ages of the spouses, their earning capacity and finances. Alimony payments are often combined with child support as family support.
- Criminal Defense
If you are convicted of a criminal offense, you may face substantial fines and years or even a lifetime in prison. Without quick and decisive action, even a relatively minor misdemeanor can completely change your life. If you are investigated or arrested for a criminal offense, whether a minor misdemeanor or a serious felony, you do not have to face the criminal justice system alone. By obtaining the services of an experienced Virginia Beach criminal defense attorney, you can defend yourself, protect your rights and either have the case against you dismissed or obtain the best disposition regarding fines, incarceration and probation terms.
- Traffic Offenses
The Virginia laws regarding driving under the influence (DUI) have changed dramatically in recent years and the penalties have been significantly increased. Courts frequently order active jail time for serious traffic offenses, especially drunk driving. The legal limit for the presence of alcohol in your body is 0.08. If you have tested at a level of 0.15 or more, the law requires the court to order mandatory jail time for you. Multiple convictions of drunk driving within five years and 10 years can increase the mandatory jail time to up to one year.
- Personal Injury
If you were injured in an accident caused by the negligence of another party, you may face mounting medical bills, rehabilitation, lost wages and lost earning capacity — all at a time when you are suffering from the injuries you sustained. At The W. Ware Morrison Law Group, we do not think you should have to suffer the consequences of someone else's negligence. Each Norfolk personal injury lawyer at our firm aggressively pursues all negligent parties and their insurance companies to help you obtain the compensation you need — and are entitled to by law — so you can get back on your feet.
* Premises liability
Landowners, property management companies and others with control over property have a duty to reasonably maintain their property to ensure that it is safe for visitors. This includes remedying all defects and warning of known defects that cannot be remedied.
* Auto Accident
Being involved in a car accident is a traumatic event that can greatly disrupt your life and result in significant pain, suffering and mental distress. You may also be faced with significant medical and rehabilitation costs, lost wages and lost earning capacity. At The W. Ware Morrison Law Group, we do not want you to face this alone.
