Virginia Law Firm Handling Your Family Legal Concerns
There is No Substitute for Experience
Married couples who experience numerous problems and fights often find themselves facing the option of divorce. Unfortunately, for most people, the situation does not get immediately easier when legal counsel is obtained. At Virginia Family Law Center, we understand you are going through a traumatic time, and our goal is to help you efficiently resolve your legal concerns so you can move on with your life.
We have over 20 years of experience representing clients in family law matters in Fairfax and throughout Virginia. Contact our firm online or call 703-659-0196 to schedule your telephone consultation with an experienced lawyer. We represent clients in all family law matters, including:
- Divorce: We help clients resolve their divorce concerns, addressing issues such as finances, property settlements agreements, child support, custody and visitation. When it is possible, we encourage our clients to resolve their divorce matters outside of court; however, when that is not feasible, we aggressively represent our clients in court.
- Child custody and visitation: Many clients who contact our firm are confused by the court’s child custody or visitation arrangement decisions. Factors such cheating or lying do not necessarily make a person a bad parent; the court’s decision is always based on the best interests of the child. We help clients negotiate with the opposing party to resolve child custody and visitation disputes.
- Child support: Child support guidelines often take people by surprise, either with the amount they are responsible for paying or the amount they will be receiving. In Virginia, child support is based on the combined gross income of both parents and is determined by a state-generated formula. We work closely with clients, helping them understand their child support responsibilities.
- Property settlement agreements: Property settlement agreements are contracts that stipulate to the division of all your marital property. We work with our clients and the opposing side to negotiate fair agreements and resolve matters related to custody, visitation and the division of marital debts and property.
