Divorce and Domestic Relations

Divorce. The breakup of a marriage or a dispute over custody is often the most traumatic and anxiety-ridden experience one can endure. Knowing your legal rights can help to ease the stress of a divorce, however. Attorney Wegman will help to restore your confidence. Mr. Wegman knows when and how to negotiate divorce matters and when and how to litigate a divorce.

Attorney Wegman handles all family law matters, including:

property division
child support
spousal support
tracing of separate property

Virginia permits a divorce only a few instances; that is, when certain grounds are met.  Living separate and apart, mental and physical cruelty, abandonment, and adultery are a few grounds of divorce.  Adultery must be pled in a divorce case with particularity.  In other words, it is vital to know the specifics of an alleged adultery case or that ground of divorce will fail.  

Hiring a private investigator is often recommended to obtain evidence proving adultery which could be beneficial to one’s divorce case.  Attorney Wegman has partnered with Diamondback Operations, LLC., a full-service investigating agency serving the Hampton Roads area, as well as the entire Commonwealth of VA.  If you suspect adultery, call Diamondback Operations, LLC. today.

Attorney Wegman has a wealth of experience in family law matters, including adoptions, and has been responsible for the happy legal union of many children with their new parent. If you are thinking about an adoption, you should call for a family law appointment.

Child Support

Occasionally, family law clients pay too much child support considering their financial situation. Family law clients can be delinquent on child support. As a result family law clients can be hounded by the Division of Child Support Enforcement (DCSE). DCSE has the authority to suspend the drivers license of a person in arrears. Judges can also incarcerate a person in arrears on child support.

Attorney Wegman also assists family law clients to obtain child support. Attorney Wegman has done many family law cases ranging from getting full relief for clients who were $50,000 in arrears to getting serious reductions. Attorney Wegman has also ensured that single parents receive the child support he or she deserves.

Mr. Wegman represented my son in a complicated court matter.  He just turned 18 and an incident that should have resulted in a minor fine turned into two felony charges.  Our family was devastated and scared beyond measure.  Mr. Wegman represented our family with grace and determination.  He is well known and respected in his field and we are lucky to have chosen him.  Both of the charges were reduced from felonies to misdemeanors

Mr. Wegman represented me at a work administrative board, March 23, 2016. He was a weapon of absolute destruction against a lying, vindictive ex-wife. He took the facts we had and the lack of facts by the other side and completely exploited them in a tactical, yet truly professional bulldog fashion. He did not shy away from what he believed in (me) and respected the laws that govern the venue. It was literally like watching an exorcism. *** It was the closest thing to divine intervention I’ve ever seen. Through this entire process I’ve had to deal with 6 or 7 different lawyers and hands down there is no doubt who is the best. I’d highly recommend him to anyone who needs a hard hitting true professional.

"Mr. Wegman was a court appointed attorney for a very delicate case he represented me in. It went all the way to trial and he was awesome. The best. He fought for me and believed in me. Mostly he cared about my family and I. He genuinely cared. I highly recommend him to everyone. I paid him nothing and he gave me 100%. So I know he will do his best for you"

Mr. Wegman has been amazing. Typically this is not something to announce publicly however I feel that his help in my cases is worth me putting it out there.  I have had two traffic tickets and he managed to get me off on both. Without TMI, my record precedes me and that was the reason I hired an attorney to begin with. (By the way, I am not talking about any DUIs just for the record). Mr. Wegman is efficient, on top of things and has been a lifesaver in my case.  I highly recommend him!
