Big Decisions Result from Smart, Small Decisions--Start Now!
You're about to make some big decisions. Whether you decide to reconcile, seek an annulment, separate, or proceed immediately through the divorce process, the decisions you make now will affect your future and the future of your family for years to come. These are definitely big decisions. Before you jump in, you want to know more.
Don’t make big decisions too quickly!
You’re here because you’re unhappy, and you’re hoping that something can be done to make life a little bit better. You’re looking for answers from all sorts of sources, and you’re hoping to find something that’s going to give you that “ah-ha” moment. You don’t have to know now where you want to end up; we’ll figure that out together.
We are a family law firm dedicated to representing women only in divorce, custody, and support issues. We’ve met with, counseled and successfully represented thousands of women from all over the Hampton Roads area, including Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Newport News, Hampton, Williamsburg, Poquoson, Yorktown, York County, and Accomac. Specifically, you want to know, "Who are these people, and can they REALLY help me?" Luckily for you, the answer is yes.
You’ll find that our approach is different from the approach of other local family law firms, because we combine education and empowerment with superior legal representation. We find that the best client is an informed client and, in a situation like divorce or custody where so much is on the line, we make educating women on these issues a priority.
After all, how do you know what to expect, what to ask for, or how to even begin planning for your future, if you have no idea about what the process may hold in store for you? How do you even begin to plan whether you’d like to hire an attorney, or what kind of divorce you might like to pursue, without a little more information? At Hofheimer Family Law Firm, we totally understand your questions and concerns, and we’re here to answer them—whether or not you choose to hire us later.

To that end, we have developed a series of free books, including “What Every Virginia Woman Should Know About Divorce,” “What Every Virginia Military Wife Should Know About Divorce,” and “The Woman’s Custody Survival Guide.” Each of these is available to you absolutely free of charge on our website.
For the last twenty years, we’ve also taught a monthly divorce seminar titled “What Every Virginia Woman Should Know About Divorce,” after Charlie Hofheimer’s popular book. The seminars became affectionately known as “Second Saturday,” to help remind attendees when it was held. Today, we hold three seminars on the Second Saturday of each month in Newport News, Chesapeake, and Virginia Beach, and a fourth seminar on the Third Tuesday of each month at our Virginia Beach location. At each seminar, one of our attorneys is there to present the information and answer questions.
We also teach a second seminar: Custody Bootcamp for Moms. This comprehensive seminar is offered quarterly at our Chesapeake office location, and is designed to help give moms who plan to litigate their own custody cases a leg up in the Virginia court system. Designed and presented by Kristen Hofheimer, the seminar is truly one-of-a-kind.
Requesting a copy of one of our free books, or attending one of our seminars, is a small decision that can yield big results. You’re going to have to make a lot of really big decisions in the upcoming days, weeks, months and, possibly, years. You’ll have to think about every part of your life, determining what’s working and what’s not, and make a plan for how to move forward. You’ll have to ask yourself, “Am I ready to be separated?” “Can we co-parent our children together?” and “Can I afford this?” But, before you ask questions like that, ask yourself what you can do today, what you can do right now, that will help make today and tomorrow a little easier.
The best thing you can do is get information—good, credible, valuable information. Educate yourself, and gear up to make these decisions in the future. All of our books and seminars were created by licensed, experienced, and trial-tested Virginia divorce and custody attorneys, so you know that the information you’re getting is accurate and up-to-date. You can trust it, and we know how important that is when you’re in unfamiliar territory and really don’t know where to turn.
After you’ve gathered information, you can start to make the big decisions, like what attorney to hire and what kind of divorce to pursue. You can start, now, to put into place the framework that will allow you to build a blueprint for the future.
We’ve made helping women in Virginia our mission, and it’s something we take very seriously. We know that it’s not just about knowing “the law,” it’s also about being intimately acquainted with the facts, and passionate about your case. We know what it takes, because all of our attorneys are trial-tested and experienced, but they’re also real human beings who care about you and the outcome of your case. Our attorneys only represent women, and only practice in divorce and custody. That means that, in just one year, each of our attorneys gets more experience in these areas than a normal attorney in five or more. We’re passionate about what we do, and we’re devoted to representing women only.
