Military Timesharing & Child Visitation Rights Lawyers In Fairfax
Helping Military Families Throughout Northern Virginia
The military life creates a unique complication with separated families. The active-duty military member does not stay in one location for long, so divorces and custody span state lines and require a personalized approach to help keep everyone’s best interests in mind. Divorced spouses need to establish a military custody schedule that takes into consideration the active duty member, the mother, the state where the child resides, and how the education, medical care, and needs of the family will affect visitation.
Few lawyers have embraced technology the way we have. We use creative and innovative ways to help our local and forward-deployed military clients with their cases and save them money. Our lawyers and staff members will interact frequently with our current and prospective military clients via “Zoom”, “Facetime”, “Cisco Webex”, “Skype”, or other means of video teleconferencing. Setting up a video teleconference with one of our attorneys for an initial client consultation is easy. Just give us a call or send us an email and we’ll make it happen.

Protecting Children & Service Members’ Best Interests
Custody agreements for military parents can be complicated as deployments, TDY schedules, PCS, and overseas assignments can significantly impact the visitation and custody of minor children. Family law judges will look at all aspects of your schedule to determine custody and visitation, and help provide the best possible scenario to ensure that the children are able to spend time with both parents and maintain normal schedules that accommodate school, vacation, and holidays.
Some factors that can be taken into consideration to create a unique military times haring and custody schedule can include:
- PCS schedules
- Mobilization to overseas assignments
- Deployment schedules
- TDY orders
- Where the custodial parent resides
- Proximity to extended family
- School location and calendar
- Holiday and vacation times
When you work with our Fairfax military divorce lawyers, we can look into all aspects of your career and help you create a unique visitation schedule for your life. Federal laws protect the rights of military parents, and you should always have an experienced lawyer on your side.

Divorce wasn’t easy, I’m glad Sarah was my lawyer.
“I chose this law office on the recommendation of a friend who went through a divorce just before I did, and I am grateful for my friend's own misery (we both laugh now about our not so fun times). Although I wouldn't wish a divorce on anyone (stick it out and try every day to make it work, or until about the sixth time she tells you she wants a divorce!), for my marriage there wasn't another option. As miserable a time as I had through more than two years of separation and divorce proceedings, I am happy that Sarah and her team were with me. Sarah always ensured my interests were protected, and her legal advice was always spot on. We never encountered any legal setbacks other than spending more time in court than expected because of the other side's actions. She was proactive in every way possible, and seemed to be a step ahead of the other side. With Sarah's help I finalized my divorce on my terms and gave up nothing that mattered to me. Thank you!”
I want to thank you for your wise counsel and words of encouragement over the last 18 months.

“Sarah has been working on my divorce and follow-on support/visitation issues for several years. I can always count on receiving timely and substantive advice regarding any situation or question I may have, no matter how novel. I think her best trait is that she knows my situation inside and out and understands the mindset of my ex-wife. This ability allows her to provide advice on my case that I may be blindsided by because I am too close to the trees to see the forest. I cannot describe how much confidence I have knowing that I have an attorney like Sarah in my corner for any future battles with my ex.”
It is not only the legal work – but the feeling of protection, understanding, and caring that sets you apart.
“I thank you both for bolstering me up and looking out for me when I needed it most.”
I was blessed to have you and your team to represent me, it was worth every penny!
