Child Support

Financially supporting the health, well-being and care of a child is the responsibility of every parent and that responsibility does not cease to exist if the parents’ divorce or if the child was born out of wedlock. Virginia has specific guidelines that determine the amount of child support that should be paid.

There are many factors that can impact child support and the cases can become quite complex. Whether you are seeking child support or being ordered to pay it, be sure to consult an experienced family law attorney to ensure that your rights are protected. At the Law Office of Michael J. George, we have practiced family law in Fredericksburg & all surrounding Ares for over 25 years. We have helped numerous clients reach child support agreements that serve the best interests of all involved.

Always Seeking a Favorable Outcome

Among the factors that come into play in determining child support are the gross income levels of both parents, the number of children involved, the amount of the health care premiums and the employment-related child care expenses for the children. In the case of a divorce, the actual child support amounts can deviate from the Virginia guidelines as part of a separation agreement between the parents.

Spousal Support

Spousal support or alimony in Virginia is not automatic. The court has broad discretion with regard to amount and duration of spousal support and there are no set guidelines that the court is required to follow in making its determination. It takes an experienced attorney to make a compelling argument to support your position in these cases.

We have over 25 years of experience helping clients to reach a fair decision in spousal support matters. I have Strong Representation In Spousal Support Cases.

Mr. George has extensive experience in both civilian and military divorces and will closely examine your case and give you an honest opinion about your chances of being successful. We will not tell you what you want to hear and pursue unrealistic expectations.
In large part, spousal support cases come down to one spouse's need versus the other spouse's ability to pay. Support can be ordered for short term, long term or lump sum payment. There are many factors the court considers in a spousal support proceeding and I will work tirelessly toward a result that is beneficial to you.

Among the factors the court considers in these cases are:
  • Obligations, needs and financial resources of both parties
  • Standard of living established during the marriage
  • Duration of the marriage
  • Age and physical/mental condition of both spouses
  • Contributions, monetary and non-monetary, of each spouse to the well-being of the family
  • The property interests of the parties, both real and personal, tangible and intangible
  • Earning capacity including the skills, education and training of the parties, and the present employment opportunities of each spouse
Contributions of one spouse to the education and career advancement of the other spouse, we successfully represent both husbands and wives who are either seeking support or trying to make an argument against paying it.
