Do I Need a Lawyer for a “Friendly” Divorce?

Serving Harrisonburg, Staunton, Winchester and Nearby Areas of Virginia

Harrisonburg divorce lawyerWhen a marriage comes to an end, the best possible scenario is an amicable divorce. When everyone can agree on the terms of separation, property and asset division, child custody, and other issues pertinent to divorce, it may seem unnecessary to hire legal counsel. However, divorce in Virginia is often much more complicated than initial appearances would indicate – and without experienced and tempered legal advice, you may find yourself in an unpreferable situation, even when that was no one's’ intention.

The Harrisonburg family law attorneys at Hoover Penrod, PLC understand the complexities of divorce.

We offer calm and reasoned advice and representation for people looking to avoid contention during their divorce proceedings. We will work directly with you to ensure you remain protected without becoming aggressive, helping ensure relationships remain as free of dispute as possible.
