Family Law Attorneys in Weirton, West Virginia

Legal help with life-changing family situations

Families are the cornerstones of society. Consequently, domestic conflicts or complex family law issues can create a lot of instability for everyone involved. At Isla Law Offices in Steubenville, OH and Weirton, WV, we calmly guide families to the right legal solutions. More than two decades of legal experience enable us to help couples deal effectively with divorce and a host of other family law matters.

Divorce is the most common family law concern that people face, and it often involves making important decisions about property distribution, child support, child custody, visitation and alimony (spousal support). We can help you define your objectives and explain your options within the parameters of Ohio family law.

Artful negotiation can help keep families out of the courtroom and, as your lawyer, we strive to help you avoid litigation whenever possible. Litigation is expensive and time consuming, not to mention it creates an adversarial atmosphere that can further inflame conflicts.

Lasting solutions for family law matters in Steubenville

Couples are wise to draft premarital agreements or put marital agreements in place after marriage, before things get rocky and disagreements arise. The advantages of drafting an agreement are that you can make level-headed decisions that clarify what is separate and marital property as well as have guidelines for property distribution in the event of divorce, legal separation or death. Then, when the unexpected happens and emotions are at their peak, you have agreements to fall back on.

If you face divorce or separation and you do not have a marital agreement, Isla Law Offices can explain how marital property law applies to your case. We work with you to arrive at satisfactory resolutions and work out marital property settlements that meet your needs.

Sometimes legal solutions are necessary for domestic violence issues, and we can provide you with the legal guidance and support necessary by using protective orders or other legal measures. With domestic violence, litigation is often the best way to deal with issues, and we can provide you with strong advocacy.
