Fairfax Property Settlement Agreements

A property settlement agreement is a contract between a husband and wife that outlines each party's rights and responsibilities. If either party does not follow through with the agreement, the court may intervene. This flexible document is an indispensable feature of any uncontested divorce. An agreement can also bring an end to any litigation on contested divorce issues such as alimony or child custody. At the law firm of MacDowell Law Group, P.C., our Fairfax property settlement attorneys can effectively negotiate on your behalf.

Our experience with the preparation, review and revision of property agreements can make the difference between an early resolution of outstanding issues and expensive and time-consuming divorce litigation. Contact our Vienna divorce lawyers online or call (703) 277-2811 to schedule an appointment to discuss your situation.

Helping You Get the Most Out of a Property Settlement Agreement

A property settlement agreement can either be comprehensive in scope to resolve all of the issues in a divorce, or it can reserve certain issues for further negotiation or litigation. Either way, it can be a useful tool for identifying the matters you and your spouse can agree on, those you will need to get more information about, and those that a judge may have to decide.

Our Fairfax family law attorneys know how to help you get the most out of the property agreement process. Because we gather the facts and frame the issues in the same way we would if we were to take your case to court, you will gain valuable bargaining leverage as we bring the facts into focus and show the merits of your position under Virginia law. As with most negotiated agreements, your ability to negotiate a favorable property settlement will be strengthened by our trial skills.
