Virginia Divorce Help
At The Maddox Law Firm, P.C. located in Tysons Corner in Northern Virginia, our first priority is zealous advocacy for our clients' interests. Our attorneys provide our clients with a practical expectation of the outcome of litigation so that a realistic assessment of settlement and negotiation options can be made. The only "won" case is a settled case, but in order to evaluate any settlement, the client must be provided with an assessment of all alternatives, including the option of litigation.
We emphasize the importance of understanding how each decision affects the overall and long term goals of the case. We help clients to look beyond their emotions to choose the best course of action needed to accomplish their goals. Where children are concerned, we focus on their best interests while zealously advocating our client's goals.
Part of the Solution, Not Part of the Problem
While issues related to family law are diverse, our goal for all types of family law cases is the same: we strive to be part of the solution for our clients, not part of the problem. Having provided thousands of people in Virginia divorce help and assistance in other family law areas, our lawyers believe that it is unwise and often self-destructive for one spouse to use a divorce or family law dispute to punish the other spouse.
This is especially true when children are involved. Accordingly, we apply common sense and urge civility at every opportunity. Contact us to learn how our approach can help your case.
As in all situations, when providing Virginia divorce help, we give advice based upon our long history of advocacy and litigation, so that each client may decide whether to settle, or to entrust a support, property, or custody decision to a judge. While we attempt to settle all cases, many cases do go to court.
When litigation is required, our lawyers draw on our years of trial experience in Virginia courts and our litigation skills to present a compelling and complete case designed to obtain the best possible results for our clients. Because we thoroughly prepare for trial and are able to present a formidable case in court, we often succeed in settling cases before a court hearing is necessary.
When Litigation is Necessary
While many couples are able to reach satisfactory agreements regarding child custody and visitation, child and spousal support, and property division, there are sometimes good faith differences of opinion that cannot be resolved by agreement and require litigation. Our firm represents clients in a wide variety of family law issues including:
- Property division
- Child custody and visitation
- Child support and related guidelines
- Alimony / spousal support
- Government retirement benefits
- Relocation of children
- Family law jurisdiction
- Child abduction
- Marital and premarital agreements
- Enforcement actions
- Domestic violence
- Military divorce
- International family law matters and appeals
- Appeals and appellate law
In these cases, our lawyers work hard to fully prepare to litigate the contested issues, and to protect our client's interests.
