Divorce Lawyer in Weirton
Compassionate Support and Skilled Representation
Divorce, even at its most amicable, can be complicated and stressful. At Isla Law Offices in Weirton, WV, we draw on more than two decades of experience to compassionately and skillfully guide you to the best possible solutions to your unique family issues.
Whether your divorce is filed in Ohio or West Virginia, you may need to consider:
- Child custody and visitation rights
- Child support
- Spousal support
- The distribution of debt, personal property, bank accounts, stocks, and other assets
- The sale or possession of your home
Communication is the key to reaching resolutions on these tough issues. We can help you finalize these matters without the time and expense of going to court. But if a significant disagreement requires further action, we can stand by your side with a reasoned approach and solid understanding of Ohio and West Virginia family law.
How Will the Court Divide Your Property?
When it comes to divorce, a major question is who gets what. Both Ohio and West Virginia are equitable distribution states. Instead of requiring a 50/50 split of marital property, equitable distribution is more flexible and takes into account the financial situation of each spouse. Bear in mind that equitable means fair—not equal.
All marital property assets are potentially available for division under equitable distribution, including:
- Real estate
- Personal property
- Stocks and mutual funds
- Retirement accounts
- Business interests
- Intellectual property
- Pension plans
- Rental property
Our clients benefit tremendously from the years of experience we bring to handling divorce. With our guidance, you can confidently pursue your fair share of your property.
Are You Entitled to Alimony?
Either you or your spouse can claim alimony. It is not automatically granted — the court considers many factors, including income, length of the marriage, marital misconduct, and child care costs.
We can clearly explain the details of spousal support to help you understand what you may be entitled to under divorce laws in West Virginia and Ohio. We can work together to create a fair agreement for everyone and get you the best financial arrangement possible. We also provide continuing legal support with modifications and enforcement of court orders, should the need arise.
