Uncontested & Contested Divorce Lawyer in Fairfax

Helping Clients Make the Right Choice for Their Future

When you and your spouse choose to get divorced, there are a few initial decisions you will have to make before the process begins. For one, you will need to choose a competent divorce attorney. It will also be important to see if you and your spouse can negotiate on some issues or if a contested divorce (litigation) will be necessary. At Keithley Law, we have more than 40 years of experience representing all types of divorce cases, including contested and uncontested.

Whatever direction your case may take, we're here to support you. Give us a call at (703) 454-5147.

What Is a Contested Divorce?

A contested divorce is where two parties cannot come to an agreement through mediation or negotiation on the important issues needing resolution. In an uncontested divorce, both parties can agree on all of the following topics, meaning that the case does not have to go to litigation.

The issues which must be resolved most often in a divorce include:

Will I Have to Go to Court?

A contested divorce is much more expensive, public, and time-consuming than an uncontested divorce. This results in higher court costs, attorney fees, and other expenses. In addition, contested divorces are fought in court which makes it harder for everyone involved, including your children.

Where a contested divorce can take many months or even a year to fully resolve everything, an uncontested divorce can be handled in two or three months in some instances. If you decide that going to court is right for you, you can rely on our Fairfax contested divorce attorney to be prepared to present your case.
