West Virginia Family Law
Full-service family law firm serving the Northern panhandle of west Virginia
Whether you are anticipating the joys of adoption or experiencing the frustrations of marital conflict, Jim Carey Law Office can help. I have ample experience serving families in the Ohio, Brooke and Hancock County area. I provide legal services in all areas of family law, including:
- Child custody and visitation
- Child support
- Child support modification and enforcement
- Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
- Pre- and post-nuptial agreements
I assist families with all aspects of international and domestic adoptions. I handle the legalities of your adoption so that you can concentrate on your new family.
Divorce should not lead to financial crises. I help you establish an equitable amount of spousal support.
Child custody and visitation
I protect your parental rights to raise your children in an appropriate and supportive home.
I can help ensure that you receive or pay an equitable amount of the financial support required to raise your children in a healthy, happy environment.
Child support modification and enforcement
Child support payments do not change unless the court modifies the child support order. If either the custodial or noncustodial parent experiences a significant change in circumstances, I can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments accordingly.
Through mediation or litigation, my divorce law firm can help you gain the most equitable results from your divorce, including fair distribution of assets, division of marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.
Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
I am skilled at maneuvering through the complex laws of West Virginia to protect your parental rights from the interference of government authorities.
Mediation puts the decisions in your hands, and can often provide more expedient, predictable results than a trial. I can help you obtain the most equitable divorce settlement.
Pre- and post-nuptial agreements
I expect the unexpected and drafts premarital agreements that protect both spouses' interests and that can alleviate some of the stress should you ever divorce.
