Biography

Laura Dove is an experienced Northern Virginia family law attorney who has exclusively focused her practice on domestic relations matters, including divorce, property distribution, child support and spousal support issues, custody and visitation, preparation of separation and property settlement agreements and all other aspects of family law. Her legal knowledge and experience spans a diverse range of complex family law issues, such as the valuation and distribution of business interests, military retirement benefits, financial investments, family trusts, imputation of income and spousal and child support matters involving unemployed or underemployed individuals, allegations of abuse, child custody evaluations, interstate and international child custody matters, immigration concerns, and parent relocation. While she resolves the majority of her cases without resorting to court intervention, Laura has the courtroom skills necessary to ensure that her clients receive the highest level of representation when it is not possible to reach an amicable resolution. Laura has been admitted to practice law in the Commonwealth of Virginia since 2003 and has appeared in Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Courts and Circuit Courts throughout Northern Virginia and the Virginia Court of Appeals. In addition to her traditional legal experience, Laura serves as a Conciliator in the Alexandria Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court and she is also trained in collaborative law.
