Northern Virginia family law attorney Afsana Chowdhury knows that before any separation, property division, divorce, child custody or other family law issue can be addressed, a proper review of your case is very important. She will meet with you and review all of the facts, including facts that are unfavorable to your case, and address all of your concerns. She will walk you through an analysis of all your income, assets, and debt, and those of your spouse, partner, or the other parent. She will discuss all the factors that affect division of your assets, child custody, and both child and spousal support.

She is skilled at handling complex problems, adversaries who are uncooperative, and opposing lawyers who are unreasonable. She explains when agreements before, during and after marriage are advisable and when you should fight in court for your rightful share. When required, she uses professional experts to provide personal counseling and financial advice. If cases do not fall neatly into the support guidelines or normal general Virginia family law customs, she fights to address these special situations and unique needs.

She believes the client should be informed, that the law should be explained clearly, and that the best interests of the client and the children come first. When possible she will explore joint legal custody and shared physical custody, but when it is in the best interest of the child she will work to get her client full decision-making authority and full physical custody. If rehabilitative or permanent alimony is needed for a spouse who is unable to earn an income, she will make that demand. In many cases, she will file for temporary relief until the waiting period for divorce is met or until a full hearing can take place.
