Kingwood Divorce Lawyer


Full-Service Counsel on West Virginia Divorce Issues

The family law attorneys of Estep & Shaffer work with people who need help with divorce. Different people react in different ways when their marriages come to an end, and few legal problems cause as much emotional turmoil as divorce does. Regardless of the level of anger, anxiety, confusion or regret that you might feel about your situation, you'll need to make some very important decisions that will have lasting consequences for yourself and your children in the years to come.

At Estep & Shaffer, our ability to help people make sound decisions under difficult circumstances represents one of the most important services we provide in a divorce case. We help our clients define priorities, set goals and understand their legal rights and responsibilities with respect to each of the issues that need to be resolved in a divorce case. Contact us in Kingwood to learn how our experience can protect your interests.

Most divorce cases require the spouses to try to reach agreement on each of the main issues that will need to be resolved in a West Virginia divorce. These include:

  • Division of marital property and debts
  • Child support
  • In some cases, spousal support or alimony
  • Child custody and visitation

If you can't reach an agreement on any one of these issues, you'll need to take the matter to court and convince the judge that your approach to child custody or a property settlement is fair and makes better sense than your spouse's. Our experience with family law and our ability to work effectively in court mean that you won't need to make unnecessary concessions just to avoid the risk of presenting your case to a judge.

West Virginia Child Support Lawyer for Modification or Enforcement Issues

Sometimes it's necessary to change the terms of a child support order, custody arrangements or a visitation schedule. Estep & Shaffer advises clients after the divorce is final about the modification or enforcement of divorce decrees whenever changed circumstances or defaults indicate the need for further legal action.

We work with clients in Preston County, Tucker County and surrounding communities like Fairmont, Morgantown, Grafton and Elkins. To work with an experienced Kingwood divorce attorney, contact us for personalized client service.
