Getting married is generally one of the most enjoyable parts of life. Your spouse becomes your life-partner and you share everything. You share your secrets, desires, challenges, children, property, money, and your own life will become one shared family unit. You will experience the best of times and the worst of times while pursuing both of your goals and objectives whatever they may be. Unfortunately, sometimes your goals change or their goals change. In other instances basic or complex needs change. The result is a need to reevaluate the marriage and determine what if anything can be reconciled. Many times therapy and an increased communication can help determine what the spouse is seeking from the other in the marriage. If, however, these changes cannot be reconciled a family law attorney can help dissolve the marriage either amicably by an uncontested divorce or a contested divorce if things are not as harmonious.
Since 1978, the Letnick Law Firm, PLC has been handling family law matters in Fairfax County, Prince William County, and Loudoun County. At this point, there is simply not much that we have not seen before. We are both aggressive negotiators and aggressive trial lawyers. We will seek the best settlement possible or, if necessary, put the matter through vigorous hearings and, ultimately, a trial.
Remember, the Court will not give flexibility to an individual simply because they are not represented by an attorney. The rules of evidence and the presentation of evidence will require the assistance of an experienced attorney. Hiring an attorney is like hiring a surgeon to stitch up a wound. You can do it yourself but would you want to? We offer a free initial 30-minute consultation to discuss your case and welcome the opportunity to speak with you.
