Helping You Prepare For New Beginnings
Filing for divorce can be one of the most difficult experiences for a person to go through. For some, the break is sudden and unanticipated. For others, a separation is a longtime coming. Regardless of how or why your marriage is ending, the attorneys at Arnold & Bailey can help ensure you and your interests are protected as you begin a new chapter in your life.
Life does not come with a script. Our lawyers lead families throughout Jefferson County through the process so they do not have to improvise.
Professional Representation For The Modern Family
At Arnold & Bailey, we understand that each case we see brings its own unique set of circumstances and challenges. That is why we work directly with our family law clients to ensure we have a clear, comprehensive understanding of the goals and objectives we need to pursue both during and after divorce.
Some cases lend themselves to quick, uncontested resolutions. Others require thoughtful and patient planning and deliberation to achieve the desired outcome. Whether resolving matters through negotiations and settlement or taking a case to trial, our attorneys will provide the creative and aggressive representation that fits your individual needs.
Some of the most common issues we help our clients address and resolve during divorce or legal separation include:
- Spousal support (alimony)

- Child support
- Grandparents’ rights
- Parental rights

Located near Washington, D.C., a significant portion of our clients are federal employees. When going through property division, it is important to consider the federal employee benefits such as the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) and the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS). Our attorneys have years of experience resolving these issues in West Virginia and can tailor our methods to the specific needs of federal employees.
