Military divorces require knowledge of the intricacies of military benefits and how to efficiently and effectively divide those benefits so that military and former-military spouses receive what is equitable and what they deserve.
Property and Asset Division
After the property and assets are categorized as marital, separate, or hybrid, an equitable (fair) division can occur. An attorney who is strategic and possesses strong written and oral communication skills is a huge benefit during this process.
Spousal support, also called alimony, may be a solution if there is a difference in the earning income and ability of the spouses. Spousal support varies greatly from court to court and judge to judge in the Oakton, Virginia area. An experienced Oakton divorce attorney can provide insight as to what to expect regarding the amount and duration of support.
Child Custody and Visitation
Collaborating to develop a custody and visitation calendar that satisfies both parties and is in the best interests of the children is very complicated. An experienced attorney has creative solutions and negotiating skills to propose a plan that works for all.
Virginia calculates child support using a formula based on each parent’s income and assets. An experienced Oakton divorce attorney can help you investigate and determine your spouse’s true income for the purposes of calculating child support. It is not always as simple as looking at a W-2.
Pre- and Post-Nuptial Agreements
Some couples plan for a future divorce by developing a “what if” plan. Our Law Office can advise what information should and should not be included in these agreements while negotiating the best terms for your circumstances.

What are the most important questions to ask an Oakton Divorce Attorney?

Our experienced family law attorneys have had great success helping Oakton, Virginia residents resolve family law matters in the Fairfax County Circuit Court. Be sure to ask about our flat-fee pricing for both contested and uncontested divorces.
Our flat-fee pricing sets us apart from most family law firms in the area. Traditionally, law firms bill for every one-tenth of an hour (six-minute increments) and round up to the next tenth to their benefit. For example, if an attorney who bills at $200 per hour leaves a one-minute voicemail message asking for a call back, he will bill the client for .1 of his time, i.e., $20. Clients under our billing structure are charged a one-time flat fee for the service, for example, finalizing and filing an uncontested divorce. The client is charged nothing additional no matter how many emails and calls are made. Our clients pay for the value of a service, not attorney time.
