Family law refers to the body of laws that is designed to protect family members and their rights when the structure of the family changes or when harm to children may occur. An experienced lawyer can guide you through the complex Virginia laws and help you and your family resolve any issue you may face.
Robert H. Klima has more than 30 years experience as a Manassas family law attorney and was recently honored as a ‘Top Lawyer’, by peer review, in the Northern Virginia Magazine. Whether the parties are best served by negotiating a settlement out of court, using mediation to resolve their dispute, or instead must go to court, Mr. Klima has the skills and experience necessary to help clients achieve a successful outcome.
When Does Family Law Apply?
Couples who are married, as well as those who were never married, may be impacted by family law. Married or unmarried, if a couple has children, the law applies equally regarding issues of:
With respect to property, however, the law gives rights only to married couples. In other words, if you live together without getting married, you are not entitled to a share of your former partner’s property. If you were married and are going through a divorce, you are entitled to a share of the marital assets. Attorney Klima will work hard to ensure that you are treated fairly in the property division process. He will help you get a fair share of:
- Real property, including the family home
- Business assets
- Personal property
- Retirement accounts and pensions
In addition, spousal support, formerly called alimony, may be available as part of a divorce. The amount of support varies depending on a number of factors, and Mr. Klima can help you whether you are seeking support or paying support.
