Divorce is one of the biggest decisions that a couple can make. After spending years building a life with someone, it can be hard making the decision to dissolve it, and it can be even harder to know where to start. If you are contemplating divorce or are going through one in the Alexandria or greater Virginia area, the Virginia Family Law Center is prepared to provide compassionate, thorough, and zealous support and representation.
A divorce lawyer will help you to meet your goals with regard to your divorce. Every family and divorce is different, and what you want is important. If you want to preserve your assets and divorce as quickly as possible, that is something a divorce lawyer can help you do. Likewise, if you want to fight tooth and nail for every bit of your shared assets that you can get, a divorce lawyer can also help you in that pursuit. Ultimately, it is always a good idea to spend some time getting clear on what it is that you hope to get out of the divorce process so that you are able to communicate this to your lawyer and allow them to come up with a plan that gets you the best possible outcome. Hiring a lawyer for your divorce does not mean that the process will automatically be more contentious. In fact, a lawyer may also introduce you to things like mediation, arbitration, and negotiation, which can help you avoid the courtroom altogether. All that talking to a lawyer guarantees is that you will have someone experienced focusing on developing a legal strategy based on your priorities and goals. If your goal is an amicable divorce, a lawyer can utilize many legal techniques and options to support you in this.
An attorney is one of the best assets that you can have when it comes to a divorce, particularly if you have a large estate or shared children. These cases can be complex and highly emotional. Having a zealous advocate who can represent your interests and stay focused on your overall goals is invaluable. Having an attorney can also help you avoid unnecessary errors which can cause long delays in the process, and ensures that you will get a fair settlement and are aware of everything to which you are entitled. The determination of separate versus marital assets, and the division and distribution of assets and debts can be a lengthy and critical process. If you want to receive the house or avoid assuming the debt that your spouse secretly took on in order to impress a mistress, you will need a lawyer to represent you.
