For many couples in Arlington and throughout the Washington, D.C., metro — especially younger couples or those who have only been married for a few months or years — uncontested divorce may be the best option for moving through the divorce process as quickly, quietly and painlessly as possible.
A Divorce Attorney Who Offers Advice Tailored To Your Unique Needs And Goals
I am attorney Daniel G. Dannenbaum and at my practice, Dannenbaum Law Firm, PLLC, I help clients across Northern Virginia look at all their options when resolving their divorce and other family law issues. Although there are plenty of capable lawyers out there touting their courtroom prowess, sometimes, litigation just isn't the right move for you and your soon-to-be ex.
With more than 25 years of experience and having handled thousands of divorce cases, I offer a strong track record of successfully litigating cases. However, I believe in providing my clients with options, not divorce ultimatums. This means looking at litigation alternatives like mediation and uncontested divorce.
You Can Do It On Your Own, But Going Solo Can Have Some Serious Consequences
Although there's nothing stopping you from pursuing an uncontested or check-the-box divorce on your own, there are still plenty of important factors to consider. I encourage you to think of it this way: Just because you can follow instructions or read up on the processes associated with an uncontested divorce, this is still foreign territory where even a simple, seemingly insignificant mistake can have lasting financial consequences.
In short, making a mistake on the front end can be costly and incredibly time-consuming to fix. In some cases, you can't undo what's been done.
Below are some important divorce issues that need to be resolved when pursuing an uncontested divorce:
- Division of assets and debts
- Division of real estate and other personal property
- Child support, health care and other types of insurance coverage
- Child custody and visitation agreements
- Alimony (spousal support)
All too often, I work with people who tried to handle their divorce matters on their own and want to make changes. However, if you waived your right to alimony, you're likely stuck. Or if you missed a portion regarding the division of your retirement benefits, you will likely be left paying for it through litigation.
