Property Division in a West Virginia Divorce
Property division can, depending on the assets of each couple, be an extremely complex process. Fundamentally though, it breaks down into two categories—defining the property and then dividing the property.
Is it Marital Property or Separate Property?
The first step is to decide what property belongs jointly to the spouses, and what belongs exclusively to one of them.
Marital property refers to assets acquired by either or both spouses during the course of their marriage. This includes houses, vehicles, bank accounts, investments, pensions, and more.

What Happens With the Kids in a West Virginia Divorce?
It can be one of the most sensitive issues in family law – who will raise the kids? Where will they spend their holidays? Who will make the decisions that arise in areas like healthcare, religion, education, and after-school activities?
West Virginia law starts with a presumption that both parents should share equally in all facets of child-raising. The circumstances of each case may make this impractical—for example, if one spouse lives much closer to where the children go to school. Other circumstances can even make it dangerous—such as those sad cases where one parent has become violent or suffers from addiction.
When necessary, our Logan County divorce lawyer can help you bring forth evidence to rebut the presumption in favor of joint custody. Or, if you believe your parental rights are being wrongly targeted, we can help defend you.
Regardless of how custody is worked out, both parents will be required to contribute to the financial upbringing of their children. West Virginia law provides guidelines for how child support is to be handled. We go over these guidelines with our clients and explain how they apply in each individual case.
