When something we thought would last a lifetime comes to an end, we often question ourselves. You may wonder: How did I get here? How did I let this happen? How could I have been so blind?

The truth is, life is messy, and love isn't always enough to keep two people together in a happy marriage. It's OK to reach a dead-end you didn't think existed. It's OK to start a new journey. It's also OK to mourn something while still understanding it is no longer serving you. Let yourself feel, so you can heal.

If you're going through a separation or divorce in Virginia, contact My Legal Case Coach to find out how we can guide you through the DIY legal process. Visit to book your complimentary consultation call.

When most children reach legal adulthood, their parets no longer need to assist them in coordinating medical care or managing their finances. But for parents of children with special needs, it’s important to have a plan in place to ensure your child receives the support they need beyond their 18th birthday.

If your adult child is unable to care for themselves, you can petition to become your child's court-appointed guardian and conservator. My Legal Case Coach can help you do so in an efficient and affordable manner. We offer legal form packets for uncontested guardianship and conservatorship cases, as well as individual coaching with a licensed Virginia attorney who can help you navigate them.

A routine is more than just a pattern; it's the backbone of security, trust, and emotional stability for children, especially during times of change.

For separated or divorced parents, establishing a consistent co-parenting routine promotes positive behavior, reinforces social skills, and smoothens transitions. From bedtime stories to daily playtime to counting steps on the way to daycare, each routine is a building block for your child's emotional and social growth, strengthening their cognitive abilities while nurturing their self-confidence and self-esteem.

Through routines, kids don't just learn what to expect, but also, who they can trust. And in the landscape of shared parenting, these moments of predictability and joy become precious memories and life lessons. So cherish these “ordinary” moments, for they're the memories our kids will hold onto for a lifetime. 🌟📜👨‍👩‍👧‍👦

📜 Navigating probate in the Commonwealth of Virginia? Beyond the emotional toll, there's a maze of legal steps to follow.

The recommended window to file for probate is within 30 days of a loved one's passing, typically after any funeral services are held. Executors play an instrumental role in the process, from gathering assets to ensuring beneficiaries receive their rightful inheritance. However, it is easy to get stuck overpaying probate taxes by rushing to file and mistakenly reporting assets that are not part of probate, so having a legal case coach there to guide you can protect you as the executor or administrator as well as the beneficiaries and heirs.

And in the absence of a Will? Expect the probate court to get more involved, in accordance with Virginia's intestacy statute, and real estate may not be deemed part of probate if the estate qualifies under certain special rules unique to Virginia. This is where having an experienced attorney-coach can make all the difference.

There's a lot to know about the probate process, but you don't have to do it alone. Head to our blog, “When Does the Probate Process Start After Death?” at to learn more.

As your parents age, there might come a time when they can no longer manage their assets and life decisions on their own. In Virginia, you can petition the court for legal guardianship and conservatorship of an aging, incapacitated parent (known as a "ward") to help them through the rest of their life.

As part of the duties of a legal guardian in Virginia, you must care for your ward by ensuring their basic living needs, including meals, clothes, and housing, are met. A guardian should act with the least-restrictive care to maintain the ward’s independence. In addition, you must manage the ward’s mental and physical health and take care of any medical needs as necessary, ensuring all decisions have the ward’s best interest in mind.

As unmarried parents, understanding child support in Virginia can be complicated. While many associate these issues with divorce, the reality for unmarried couples who split up after having a child can look quite different. For instance, parents who are going through a divorce will typically go through the Circuit Court system, while parents who have never been married can go through Virginia's Division of Child Support Enforcement (DCSE) or the Juvenile and Domestic Relations District (J&DR) Court. DCSE can provide a more streamlined process, but any disagreements might lead you to the J&DR Court.

If you're an unmarried parent seeking to establish a child support arrangement, you don't have to navigate it alone. At My Legal Case Coach, we offer detailed legal case form packets for J&DR Court and 1:1 coaching to simplify the process. Book a 15-minute consultation at to learn how we can help, and how you can get one (1) free hour of legal coaching with the purchase of one of our packets.

Learning to step back, let go, and empower our kids to grow can be one of the most challenging, yet rewarding, aspects of parenthood.

And isn't daring greatly what we want for them?
