Whether you will be receiving support payments or will be making them, it is important that a fair and accurate amount is calculated.
The Miller, Walsh, Kutz & Laster law office understands the concerns of unmarried parents as well as those experiencing divorce.
Virginia child support laws deem both parents responsible for the financial support of their children until age 18 (or longer in certain circumstances). The Code of Virginia sets out a Schedule of Monthly Basic Child Support Obligations to determine the appropriate amount of child support to be paid by each party.
It’s important to understand the many factors the court considers when applying the Schedule to your case. Our skilled attorneys will take the time needed to learn about your unique situation and help you reach the most favorable determination possible.

LEGAL MARITAL SEPARATION
Many couples choose legal separation as a way of taking time to decide whether they want to pursue a divorce.

These benefits may include anything from preserving medical insurance to adhering to personal religious beliefs.
The lawyers of Miller, Walsh, Kutz & Laster will help you with the division of property, the legal issues of child custody and visitation, the protection of your finances, and your rights as a parent while separated from your spouse.
