Family Law

Full-service family law firm in Richmond
Whether anticipating the joys of adoption or experiencing the frustrations of divorce, you need a competent, assertive Virginia attorney by your side when facing important family issues. Family lawyers at the Law Office of Jennifer M. Newman, P.C. zealously advocate for your rights and provide protection for your family during all family law proceedings, including:

  • Child custody 
  • Child visitation
  • Child support
  • Child support modification and enforcement
  • Divorce
  • Abuse and Neglect
  • Pre- and post-nuptial agreements

Child custody and visitation
We advocate for your parental rights so you can raise your children in a fit and healthy home.  Losing or not being given the right to see your children is a horrible thing. You need a confident, experienced attorney to help you fight for your rights as a parent. Jennifer M. Newman has a great deal of experience with the civil courts deciding child support, custody and visitation. Do not allow your rights to be violated or taken away. Let Jennifer Newman fight for you and your children.  

Child support
Parents share the responsibility of raising their child. We advocate for a fair division of financial support between the parents so that the child can have a healthy, happy upbringing.

Child support modification and enforcement
Child support payments do not change unless the court modifies the child support order. If either you or the other parent experiences a significant change in circumstances, our attorneys can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments accordingly.

Divorce
Through mediation or litigation, our law firm fights for your rights to get the best possible settlement or judgment — including your fair share of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.

Abuse and Neglect
When Virginia authorities interfere with your parental rights, you need a zealous advocate who understands how to cut the bureaucratic red tape. We are skilled at maneuvering through the complex laws of Virginia to protect your parental rights.

Pre- and post-nuptial agreements
Love can blind you to the potential for financial loss if the marriage fails. We expect the unexpected and draft agreements that protect our client’s financial interests.

We have been helping clients with family law matters for more than 10 years. Call us at 804-421-9975 or contact us online to schedule your free initial consultation.
