Divorce Lawyers Serving Barboursville and Huntington

If you are considering filing for divorce, or if you have already filed for divorce, know that the decisions you make during this time will impact your life and the lives of your children for the rest of your life. There are so many issues in divorce, such as property division, alimony, child custody, and child support that only the most experienced and aggressive attorney should oversee. At Hoover Andrews PLLC, we understand that a divorce can bring on many different emotions, including anger. You need a lawyer who will take that anger and translate it into successful action.

Protecting Your Children

We understand that child custody and parenting time are some of the biggest sources of disagreement in any divorce. In West Virginia, joint custody (parenting time) is an increasingly common arrangement. In joint custody, one parent will have primary physical custody, while the other will have rights to visitation. Both parents will share in making important decisions about the child's upbringing, such as religion, education, and medical issues.

Protecting Your Assets

Another major source of disagreement in a divorce involves dividing the marital property. In West Virginia, marital property is subject to an equitable division. It is important to know that equitable does not always mean equal, and courts have a lot of discretion when dividing marital property.

Our lawyers take an aggressive, thorough approach in every divorce case. This approach can pay dividends during the property division process. We will locate any and all marital property, including retirement accounts and real estate. If you and/or your spouse own a family-owned business, we will enlist experts to obtain a proper value of the company. We will demonstrate just how much you brought to your marriage, and will fight to make sure you get an equitable share of the marital property.
