What are your options when a family issue becomes a legal issue? It will depend on the facts and circumstances of your unique situation. A divorce; a child custody or support dispute; an adoption – these are all among the many different legal issues that can arise out of family problems in Virginia. Whatever the basis of your issue is, finding the right approach could save you time, resources and heartache.
Although your family law issue may have been festering for months before you finally decide that legal action is necessary, the fact remains that direct negotiations between the parties can oftentimes still be the most fruitful approach. Yes, these are highly personal and emotional issues to address, and it may seem like there are no good options to reach a solution. But, direct negotiations, or even mediation, can be preferable from a time and resources angle for many Virginia residents.
However, if you simply cannot avoid litigation in a courtroom, having a strong and trusted advocate by your side can be indispensable. Understanding your case and your concerns should be the bedrock starting position when your case is moving toward courtroom litigation.
