Fauquier VA, Divorce Lawyers
Award Winning Family Law Firm – Providing Persuasive & Compassionate Legal Representation
At ROOP XANTTOPOULOS BABOUNAKIS PLLC, our Fauquier, VA divorce lawyers diligently represent our clients when pursuing the goals of our clients in family law matters like divorce. Spouses usually are not communicating effectively when they are dealing with the animosity and conflict that lead to the deterioration of a marriage. Our family law firm is committed to offering our clients innovative resolutions to their divorce problems. While spouses can pursue a divorce on their own, an experienced family lawyer can assist you in navigating through the minefield of emotions that can prevent effective negotiation and amicable divorce settlements.
Our experienced and knowledgeable Fauquier, VA divorce lawyers can keep you focused on the relevant issues and advise you regarding the range of possibilities and likely outcome if a judge were to decide a particular issue. This information enhances attempts to reach a settlement on individual issues. When attempting to proceed without legal advice or representation, many clients make critical mistakes like negotiating terms that are unenforceable, such as attempts to waive child support. Even if the negotiated terms are permissible, unrepresented parties often draft a Property Settlement Agreement (PSA) that fails to accurately reflect their negotiated terms. Our law firm provides representation to parties in uncontested divorces like these, so the divorce proceeds efficiently to a judgment that reflects the understanding of spouses.
When a negotiated agreement is not an option because of the nature of the issues in your divorce, such as an uncooperative spouse or a genuine disagreement, our Fauquier divorce lawyers have the skill and seasoning to effectively pursue your interest in a contested divorce. Because our approach is to diffuse conflict and promote amicable settlements for our clients, we continue to negotiate during the litigation process. We are prepared to effectively litigate for our clients, including taking cases to trial when the circumstances merit this approach. Our law firm will seek the relevant financial documents and conduct depositions if appropriate to protect your financial interests regarding spousal support, child support, and the equitable division of marital property. We will also seek evidence from teachers, doctors, school nurses, coaches, babysitters, and others with relevant information that can influence a guardian ad litem or custody evaluator in a contested custody dispute.
Our Fauquier, VA divorce lawyers specifically tailor our legal representation to the goals and needs of our clients and the circumstances of their case. Whether you were involved in a short marriage with no minor children or assets or you were in a long marriage with minor children and a large net worth, we adapt our approach accordingly. Some of the family law and divorce issues we handle include:
- Highly Contentious Custody Disputes
- Collaborative Divorce and Mediation
