Can I Make My Spouse Get A Job?

No spouse enjoys being required to pay monthly spousal support to the other spouse. The inevitable claim is that the recipient spouse is either voluntarily unemployed or under-employed. In other words, the recipient spouse is intentionally not getting a job, or not earning to his/her capability, thereby requiring the employed spouse to pay an unreasonably large amount of support.

You Should Always Execute a Written Fee Agreement with your Attorney

In Virginia, the relationship between and attorney and client is considered to be contractual in nature. As such, any claim for legal malpractice against your attorney is governed by the statute of limitations for a breach of contract action: three (3) years for an oral agreement and five (5) years for a written agreement. Because of this, whenever you engage the services of an attorney, it is crucial that you execute a written fee agreement outlining the scope of services to be provided.
