I went through a bad divorce and didn’t have a prenup. I lost a lot of the assets I spent years working for. I’m engaged to marry again and I want to protect what I have from that same situation if the marriage doesn’t work. My fiancé and I have talked about doing a prenup that lets me keep everything I have if we divorce within the first 5 years of marriage, but gradually gives my fiancé/wife more interest the longer we are married. Is it legal to put these kinds of terms in a prenup and can my fiancé and I draft it ourselves or should we have a lawyer do it?

I’m a father and I want to know my rights in a divorce and custody case. The mother is asking for alimony and full custody of our kids. I don’t agree with either of those things. She can get a job and support herself and I’m a good dad who should at least have 50/50 custody. What rights do I have to fight alimony and get shared custody of my kids? I’ve heard that courts in Virginia always favor the mom and men are required to pay alimony if they make more money than the wife. I need an aggressive lawyer who understands father’s rights and will fight for me in court.
Divorce Richmond, VA
My ex-girlfriend had a baby 3 months ago. I just received a notice from North Carolina Child Support Services that she is coming after me for child support. The paperwork also says she wants me to pay some of her hospital bills for having the baby. I’m currently unemployed and I am not even sure the child is mine. Can she get child support or medical expenses from me if I’m not working? I also need to know how I go about getting a paternity test. Will she have to pay for it since she’s the one asking for child support?
