The idea that your marriage relationship is possibly coming to an end is gut wrenching. You have intense feelings of anger, frustration, depression, disappointment, and fear about what the future holds. It is normal for you to be in turmoil when your finances are unclear and your children's future unsure.
SAVE YOUR MARRIAGE, SEPARATE, OR END IT?
As a woman considering or confronting a Virginia separation or divorce, your concerns can be exacerbated by the rigorous demands of the legal system, specifically the process of separation and/or divorce. You may be getting conflicting advice from friends and family about what to do. Whether to save the marriage, or to end it. All of your family and friends want to help you, but few of them really know what to do "legally" to protect you, your children, your finances and your future.
You should be advised of the protections available to you whether your final outcome is reconciliation, separation or divorce.
We understand that your dealing with your husband about a possible separation or divorce is a terribly devastating experience. One aspect of this experience where we can help you is by providing you confidential options and alternatives and explaining how they will legally affect you. There are special agreements you can employ to try and save your marriage in addition to the 4 different ways you can become separated and/or divorced.
WHETHER YOU RECONCILE OR SEPARATE, GET SOLID LEGAL ADVICE.
Whether you need someone to help negotiate possible reconciliation or whether you need someone to negotiate a separation agreement that includes spousal support, custody, child support and property division, you have peer recognized professionals who are prepared to handle any family law matter. If the distribution of your marital assets requires outside-of-the-box thinking, then your Hofheimer Family Law Firm attorneys are who you can rely on.

Kristen and Diane you are angels. I am divorced! I can't get over this feeling that has washed over me. I feel like a big weight has been lifted. I am free! Thank you for stepping in the way you did and for caring. I trust you and you don't know how much that means to me. I don't come to trust in people easily these days. Thank you, thank you, thank you! God bless you!"

Why We Only Represent Women in Virginia Divorce Proceedings
In 1992, Charlie Hofheimer was concerned with the contradictions and conflicts that arose when attorneys represented a Father/Husband in one case and a Mother/Wife in the next. He decided to do what no one in Virginia had done before - create a unique law firm dedicated solely to educating and representing women in Virginia divorce and child custody cases.
In June of 2002, Jack Ferrebee , Charlie Hofheimer and Charlie's daughter, Kristen Hofheimer joined their practices to expand the legal services available to their respective clients. The firm included Jack Ferrebee, Charlie Hofheimer, Kristen Hofheimer, Jeff Tarkington, and Sheera Herrell. Since the 2002 merger, Shannon Lemm, Wendy Grainger and Matt Hamel have joined the firm.
Over the years, our attorneys and staff have developed a method of representing Virginia women that emphasizes compassionate understanding of their individual situations with effective advocacy of their cases. Our attorneys are recognized statewide and nationally for their ability to help resolve difficult issues with forward thinking legal strategies.

Divorce Education for Women is our Passion!
"I took your class after a neighbor told me about it, and it was a real blessing. I learned a lot and took it to heart, earning three degrees since that time. I am now an Intensive In-Home Counselor helping families in crisis. I referred multiple people to your seminars when I lived in Virginia Beach (until 2007).
My 15 year old son and I survived because of the information I learned in your seminar. Thank you for your free book, your practice, and sharing of information, which I consider to be a ministry" Jill
