Virginia Divorce Lawyers
Sometimes, life throws us for a loop and the unexpected happens. In some cases, two people, no matter how in love they used to be, simply cannot make their marriage work no matter how hard they try, and divorce is inevitable. Divorce is always a difficult, emotionally taxing experience, but it doesn’t have to be unbearable. One of the hardest tasks for some divorcing couples is to divide assets and reach a divorce agreement, but this does not have to be the daunting process it may appear to be.
Even if two partners have significant disagreements, they can reach a solution as long as they are willing to compromise and work together. This is best accomplished through attorneys who can create a divorce agreement that protects both of their best interests and allows each of them to move on without any lingering negative feelings.
Uncontested Divorce Agreements
Uncontested divorces, also called amicable divorces, are the more ideal type of divorce for many couples. In this type of divorce, both partners agree on most if not all issues regarding their split, such as possession of property and child custody. Uncontested divorces are usually resolved much faster than contested divorces and tend to involve much less stress for the partners. In this type of divorce, creating a divorce agreement is much simpler since both parties already agree on most issues.
Because they agree on the divorce issues, amicable couples may wish to write up a divorce agreement on their own without the use of an attorney or mediator. However, it is always better to have an attorney write the agreement to ensure the proper language is used and that both parties’ interests are represented and protected. Dua Law Firm’s expert divorce lawyers will make the uncontested divorce process even simpler by creating a written agreement that both parties can agree on.
Contested Divorce Agreements
Contested divorces, divorces in which the partners have drastically opposing views on their issues, are much more complicated than uncontested divorces. In these cases, it’s usually much harder for an agreement to be reached and more lawyer intervention is needed. Some couples in a contested divorce may wish to let a judge decide the matter in court since they cannot reach a solution on their own.
However, it’s more ideal for a couple to work together to create an agreement through attorneys instead of battling it out in court and waiting for a judge’s decision. Even the most bitter of divorces can be made much simpler when the partners use an attorney to create a divorce agreement.
Dua Law Firm’s expert divorce lawyers can help you navigate a messy contested divorce and create an agreement that protects your rights without relying on a judge to make the final decision.

I gladly hired Mr. Travis to handle my Divorce case, this is the first time I file for a divorce so he took the time to explain to me how it works and how we should proceed. His fees were very reasonable compared to other lawyers in Virginia. He is a very knowledgeable and competent lawyer, working fast and efficient to go through the divorce papers. Mr. Travis was almost always available when I would call the office to discuss issues regarding my case. If he wasn't available he would call back as soon as possible.
Travis is a very experienced lawyer in landlord/tenant dispute. He provided timely and well-thought advice throughout. More importantly, he is responsive and accessible at any time. Highly recommended.
Travis is very honest and compassionate. I used his services on 2 different occasions within the last 5 years and saw him grow into a very strong professional. He is very good at listening and truly understanding your needs and won't spend needless time and money. He will fight for you and the best interest of your kids. I cannot recommend Travis highly enough if you are facing a difficult time of divorce and need a caring yet very strong attorney who's truly looking out for you.
I found Raj Dua through a womens’ advocacy group in June 2008. My three children had been abducted from India and brought to the Virginia, USA without my knowledge, and I was beginning a long struggle to get my children back through the Fairfax courts. Not only did Mr. Dua come highly recommended to me by the womens’ group who was helping me at the time, but as I began working with him, I found that he was very talented. From the first meeting, Mr. Dua presented a keen intelligence, an eye of detail and a sympathy for my case.
My case was a very complex one involving two countries, the issue of subject matter jurisdiction, divorce, custody, child support and more. Mr. Dua worked long dedicated hours to sift through the complexities, prepare for each hearing thoroughly, and present lucid arguments at court. He was dedicated to the case every step of the way, and was instrumental in helping me get the positive outcomes I wanted – at every hearing. He placed a strong emphasis on detailed case preparation, including a lot of research of case law, and excellent presentation, and had an eye for the right details that could either make or break a case. Mere words cannot express my gratitude to Mr. Dua for his skill, talent, compassion, and understanding of my case. If anyone has a complex matter, especially with regards to family law/custody, I would say that Mr. Dua would definitely be the best person to contact.
