Family Law

Clement Wheatley has more than 80 years of experience representing clients in family law matters. We proudly serve individuals throughout Southern Virginia.

Clients come to us with various needs and high expectations. We are dedicated to guiding them through the emotional and legal complexity of matters involving their families. In doing so, we develop unique strategies to protect our clients’ financial future and family structure, expeditiously and efficiently.

We work closely with our clients to assess their legal issues. We consider the estimated costs and duration of litigation, as well as the disruption to their personal lives. Our team is experienced and committed to promoting early and successful resolution of our clients’ needs through negotiation, discovery, and mediation. Despite our best efforts, not every case can be settled or resolved amicably, sometimes resulting in litigation. Our team has the skill and experience to diligently represent our clients from the beginning stages of their family law conflict through resolution.

Our attorneys also routinely counsel and assist clients prior to and during marriage. We endeavor to avoid conflict and protect their family property and current or future assets in a harmonious and professional manner. These goals can often be accomplished with the preparation of premarital and marital agreements.
