Fairfax Divorce Mediation Lawyers

Guiding Military & Government Personnel & Their Spouses In The Mediation Of Family Law Disputes in Northern Virginia

If you are active duty or retired military officer, federal government employee or retiree, or a spouse of these and you’ve reached an impasse in negotiating your family law or divorce issues, the Law Offices of Michael Kevin Murphy, PLLC is here to help. With more than three decades representing those who serve the people of the United States, we have extensive training and understand the stress and difficulty you face.

For most people, dealing with lawyers is difficult. We get that. When a divorce mediation law matter comes up, powerful emotions often make it even more difficult to deal with, and no one wants to take time off from work or drive a long distance, worrying about traffic and parking, only to sit in a strange law office waiting to meet a lawyer for the first time. We understand that. We found a better way a long ago. Setting up a video teleconference with one of our attorneys, for an initial client consultation or a follow-up, is easy via “Zoom”, “Facetime”, “Cisco Webex”, “Skype”, or other means of video teleconferencing.  Just give us a call or send us an email and we’ll make it happen.  And wear whatever you’d like. We will too.

We will go out of our way to help you become comfortable with us and reach your goals. Our employees are personable and accommodating, and our Fairfax mediation practice is designed to achieve an amicable, creative, and long-lasting solution for you and your family. We help clients throughout Fairfax, Prince William, Loudoun, Arlington, and Stafford Counties and the City of Alexandria in Northern Virginia.

Mediation Can Work For You In Settling Disputes

Mediation is sometimes used by the Law Offices of Michael Kevin Murphy, PLLC to settle marital issues when negotiations have bogged down for one reason or another or an opponent has taken one or more unreasonable positions in negotiations. We have found that employing one of the many outstanding retired judges as a mediator in such cases can be a cost-effective and extremely useful way to bring about a settlement.

In a mediation, each spouse is typically represented by their own trained, competent divorce and family lawyer — such as our firm — while an experienced third-party mediates the dispute. The goal of the mediation process is to work through the most complex, difficult issues, such as child support, child custody, and spousal support. We address these issues without the need for the accusations and blame that often arise in court proceedings. This eliminates the negative emotions and aggression that litigation often brings out, and it also allows you to create a solution that best fits your family and your future, rather than being forced into a decision that may not meet your needs.

Law Offices of Michael Kevin Murphy, PLLC have extensive training and experience representing service members and government personnel in mediation and in the courtroom. Our goal is to achieve your goals in this difficult time and position you to go forward well.
