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.

Children returned and Assets retained… enough said!
I retained Mike and Rebecca to represent me in what even the presiding judge admitted was one of the most complex cases he'd ever seen. Basically, my ex spouse manufactured allegations against me which she used to remove our minor children from the Commonwealth to return to her home state without my knowledge or consent. I had to fight tooth and nail to try and clear my name and get my kids back. Well, Mike and Rebecca did just that. They met every legal challenge professionally and with decisions that were in the best interest of the children. The result is that ALL of the children have been returned home to Virginia with me having primary custody AND I retained ALL of my assets. Note: I am also a lawyer who knows great legal work...this is such a case. The best interest of the child(ren) is THE standard.
Without his guidance and representation I am confident that I would be lost and without my children.

“Mike Murphy and his team helped me negotiate a very favorable divorce settlement. Their advice and counsel allowed me to keep 100% of my military pension, sole ownership of my two homes, and helped reduce my spousal support payments from seven years to five. I never dreamed a settlement this favorable was possible, but Mike and his team made it a reality.”
