Effective Resolutions for Support and Custody Issues

The law office of PGD Law PLLC, serves family law clients in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C.

Proactive Legal Service That Seeks Solutions for Your Big Issues

Child Custody

When a marriage ends, child custody is possibly the most sensitive issue to address and can be the most difficult matter to resolve. At PGD Law PLLC, our lawyers have extensive experience protecting the parental rights of our clients during divorce.

We are skilled in all aspects of child custody, including issues surrounding joint custody, parenting time, visitation/access, relocation, changes in custody and international custody disputes. Regardless of the legal issues our clients face, we are dedicated to helping them achieve their goals.

Child Support

Child support is calculated differently in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. While there are state-established formulas that clearly define the amount of support payments, there may be unique instances where our firm can help fight for or defend against deviations from the guidelines. This includes resolving support issues raised in foreign jurisdictions.

Custody and Support Issues Between Unmarried Parents

Unmarried parents often face the same child custody, visitation and child support issues as divorcing parents do. We help these clients address paternity and custody issues and ensure that their parental rights are protected.


Our firm employs assertive legal tactics to promote our clients' alimony goals during the divorce process. Dealing with issues of temporary, rehabilitative and permanent spousal support, our lawyers know how to obtain the evidence needed to support or defend against alimony claims.

Post-Divorce Modifications

Even after a divorce is finalized or an order is entered, there remain incidences when a client must seek a modification of an alimony, a child support or a child custody order. If your former spouse experiences a significant change in income or moves out of the state or country, or if your child's financial needs change greatly, our attorneys are in a position to help.

Similarly, if you require representation in enforcing or defending against alimony, custody or child support orders, our attorneys can help.
