Need Family Law Representation?
Dua Law Firm, PLLC, offers comprehensive legal services to families in Virginia who are facing a disruption in their normal family life. The legal matters we routinely assist clients with include drafting of contractual agreements between spouses, including prenuptial agreements, postnuptial agreements and settlement agreements. We also assist clients throughout the divorce process as they face issues such as child custody, spousal support and the equitable distribution of property. Once a divorce has been finalized, we then assist clients with the modification and enforcement of support agreements, child custody arrangements and property settlements. In addition, we assist clients in seeking protective orders and separate petitions for child support, child custody, visitation, and spousal support.
Guiding Clients Throughout the Confusing Divorce Process
Virginia has a number of complex rules regarding divorce proceedings. For instance, to simply file for divorce, you or your spouse must have been a resident and domiciliary of the Commonwealth of Virginia for at least the prior six months. To be granted a divorce, you must be separated for a minimum of six months and have already entered into a written property settlement agreement. If you and your spouse have children, you must be separate for a longer period of time (a minimum of one year) before filing for divorce. These rules are intended to ensure that the couple is prepared to deal with the consequences of divorce. However, they can often complicate matters and so it is important that you know all the requirements and implications of divorce beforehand.

See What Our Clients Have to Say
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.

Travis is very knowledgeable, responded very promptly to my messages and provided me with the legal advice I needed. He was always very professional, kind and supportive. I highly recommend Travis and I will continue to retain his services, as needed.
