William Akers, co-founder of Akers and Cleator Law Group, says, “At Akers & Cleator we understand that each case is different. Each client has a different story, a different background, and a different understanding of the legal system. Our approach centers on obtaining a thorough understanding of our client, the dispute, and explaining the law to our client.”
Family law often has to do with divorce, which can be an emotionally trying and complex process. The family law or divorce attorneys at Akers and Cleator have the necessary knowledge about the law and can offer the necessary support for the client during the difficult process. The attorneys at the firm are sensitive to the specific needs of each client and are very skilled in handling both uncontested and contested divorce issues.
Custody and visitation is one of the contentious issues during a divorce process. Sometimes, the divorcing couple are unable to reach an agreement and the court may have to make a ruling with regards to custody and visitation rights. The lawyers at Akers and Cleator will be working with their client in offering advice on the best way to ensure the well-being of the children.
It is important to note that in the Commonwealth of Virginia, parents are legally obliged to support their children and this has to continue until they reach the age of 18. However, for children who are still in school, the support has to continue until they reach the age of 19 or when they graduate from high school, whichever comes first. With regards to the amount of support, Virginia courts will follow certain guidelines when computing child support obligations, including the consideration of the earning capacity of both parents. The attorneys from Akers and Cleator are thoroughly equipped to walk their clients through the process and advocate to make sure that the process is fair and will result into the best possible outcome.
With regards to spousal support, there are no established guidelines that the court must follow in specifying the amount. The court will have to take into account a broad range of factors when determining the amount of support to award to a party. These factors include the length of the marriage, the age and physical and mental conditions of the parties, contributions to the marriage, and much more. This is why it is essential to have counsel who is knowledgeable regarding the intricacies of the process. The attorneys from the firm are very familiar with the process and will advocate on behalf of their client to make sure that there is fairness in determining the true income of the parties and the amount to be provided as spousal support.
