Family Law

Our team handles legal separation and divorce, child custody, child support and visitation rights, equitable distribution, alimony and spousal support issues. Pender & Coward’s family law team has extensive experience handling all aspects of family law. Our team handles a wide range of cases from legal separation and divorce, child custody, child support and visitation rights, to equitable distribution, alimony and spousal support issues. We understand what a client is experiencing with legal troubles involving family law and are sensitive to the special concerns that accompany military divorces, international custody and divorce disputes, as well as domestic violence, reproductive rights and paternity issues.

We assist a wide range of clients involved in family disputes representing professional couples, business owners and those serving in the United States military as well as civil service. Located in Hampton Roads, we are particularly experienced in litigating child custody relocation cases, and understand the impact it has on all of the parties involved.

Our team guides clients with counseling and advocacy in court when a marriage or a family unit is dissolving, particularly when parents are involved in high conflict custody disputes. Additionally, we have a broad understanding of what is involved in the distribution of high value marital estates including the valuation of real property, closely held businesses and investments. The family law team at Pender & Coward prides itself on taking a hands on approach with clients as we guide them through what is a very difficult emotional process that is often legally complex.
