Alexandria Family Law Attorneys

Compassionate Family Lawyers Serving Northern Virginia

Sometimes, marriages encounter problems and arguments that lead to divorce. Seeking legal council does not immediately solve the issues, but it is a great place to start.

At King, Campbell, Poretz, and Mitchell, we realize this is a very difficult time for you, and it is our goal to help you navigate it and resolve your legal concerns so you can heal and move forward with your life.

We proudly assist clients with all aspects of family law, including:

  • DivorceWe address the issues of child support and visitation, finances, and property settlement agreements to help resolve the concerns of our clients. If possible, we suggest our clients work to resolve their matters out of court. This is not always possible, and, in that case, we will assertively represent our clients in court.
  • Property settlement agreements. These agreements are legal contracts that stipulate the division of marital property. We work with our clients to negotiate agreements that are fair to both parties as well as to resolve custody and visitation matters. We also work closely with our clients to deal with the division of marital debts.
  • Child support. Whether it is the amount they are responsible for paying or the amount they will be receiving, the guidelines for child support often surprise clients. Here in Virginia, it is determined by a state-generated formula based on the combined gross income of both parents. This can be a very complicated and emotional subject, but we work closely with clients to help them understand their child support responsibilities.
  • Child custody and visitation. The court always makes the decision based on the child’s best interests. Sometimes, the court’s custody or visitation agreements confuse clients, but things like lying or cheating don’t automatically make the person a bad parent. We are here to help clients resolves child custody and visitation disputes.
